Mere Objects 34.jpg

Mere Objects: a tiny paintbrush and fragment from a studio drop cloth, along with two tiny reproductions of paintings -- a self-portrait as an altar boy, and a crucifixion scene. Together they tell the story of childhood abuse at the hands of a priest, as well as the creativity and deep spirituality that brought him a measure of peace. This bottle was assembled by the survivor's sister, as he is now deceased.

 

May every earthly suffering be washed away as you rest in the arms of your Great Creator, whose name is Love.
