This painting is from my Nets of God Series. I discovered images of World War II parachute test dummies on a site called Obsolete. They were haunting reminders of man’s broken condition. We are Parachute Dummies. But for the grace of God we can not fly.

I arranged photo copies like The Three Graces. The central image is surrounded by gold leaf glory; the other two are shadow-like photo transfers. Over these is a minimally drawn charcoal figure.

Beauty is not only a terrible thing, it is also a mysterious thing. There God and the Devil strive for mastery, and the battleground is the heart of men. Fyodor Dostoevesky
