As an artist I am intrigued by the enlivening act recorded in sacred writ: 'Lord formed man...and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being...'. Here I depicted, symbolically, the birth of the first man. Words of the humanist scholar Leon Battista Alberti always encourage me to greater artistic expression: "The movement of the soul is expressed through the movement of the body."
This piece won Honorable Mention at the 2014 Art Renewal Center Salon.
