African Ascension

A wonderful young man was interviewing the artist about his two paintings with depictions of Jesus, The Transformation and On the Third Day. His two questions were simple and straight forward: “Why do artists depict Jesus as a fair skinned man? Why not show him as a Middle Eastern man or a Northern African man as he probably was? In response, this depiction of Christs Ascension on Easter Day combines the figure of a Northern African Jesus against the background of a delicate fractal digital image. Fractals are created when complex mathematical formulas find order in a world of chaos. As one Fractal artist so eloquently stated: Balancing on a knife edge between order and chaos lies a world in which mathematical perfection shows its beauty through mysterious depths and swirls of complex elegance. Perhaps this is a more accurate description of Christ bringing to the world a sense of order from all the chaos, and the fractal that was created, showing the true meaning of a Halos glow.
