This was my first real project in clay that I had been anticipating. The right hand is commonly seen depicted in iconographies as the ‘gift of a blessing’. The touching of the two fingers symbolize the joining of the divine and human nature in Jesus. I've had inner conflict for the past year over who I am-how I share myself artistically, and I thought that playing a static role felt safe. As I am cultivating my expression in art to new mediums such as sculpture/videography/photography etc, I'm anxious to share. To experience the trial + error of art is my own surrender to human nature to try and reach the ‘divinity’ of my work. However that may look; whenever that may be.
