Mary Jane goes in depth on a journey at Vaughan Park NZ during her Art Scholarship the past two months. When finished she will share her finished icons from the collection called, On Holy Ground.
The collection of images focuses on our humane relationship to this divine planet. Some may not think of Earth as being divinely inspired or having come about from the divine. Science has yet to describe what existed before the big bang or how life on the planet actually got here.
Mary Jane Miller highlights the earth as the perfected surface we live on which is being challenged by climate change; our human impact on what she calls divine space. The style diverts from traditional icon imagery yet is pleasing as well as provocative.
