Artist Statement
“Sources of Light refers to spiritual beauty, which is portrayed here in the tranquil atmosphere of this intimate chapel in St. Andrew’s Church in Pasadena. A corner of the chapel is illuminated by a shaft of light falling towards an altar and the religious murals on the back wall. The light shaft and votive candles gently highlight statuary of a loving baby Jesus held by St. Joseph, evoking concepts of Jesus as “the Light of the world”. In the corner stands a gilt-embellished statue of St. Peter holding the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Also revealed in the foreground are missals and high on the wall a Menorah and Chi-Rho christogram, an ecumenical pairing of symbols.”
