I think sometimes it's good to volunteer to do something. In my case it usually has something to do with my art and this is why this whole fish thing has been happening. I've made seventy eight concrete fish this week for our church's Easter Sunrise Service. I looked up the meaning of the fish symbol and came up with this little fact. Although there were many other explanations, I kind of liked this one.
The theology of the Icthys symbol
The Greek letters that make of the word for fish are IXOYE, and they form an acronym that has also been associated with this symbol. Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter', which is translated as 'Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior'
I h s o u V - Jesus C r i s t o V - Christ Q e o u - God's U i o V - Son S w t h r - Savior
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
