Description

The concept of the Trinity in the Christian Bible is interesting and complex to say the least. 3 in 1, 1 as 3, but only 1....
To explore this idea I decided to deconstruct it into linear faces, and what better way to do this then with the tools of traditional construction in classical Geometry: the straight edge (ruler without measurements), and the compass. I deconstructed a complex idea with these tools, and yet these tools were used to construct the complex shapes and ideas in Geometry. The black line work and vivid colours also play reference to lead lighting and stained glass art works. A style often used in religious art in cathedrals worldwide, and throughout History.

This piece is part of an ongoing series that I am exploring. If you're interested in similar please get in touch. This particular piece is SOLD. Thank you.
