Easter 2021 Digital Art and Spoken Word

Apr 5, 2021

Meditate on the themes of Easter as you watch this timelapse of the creative process of artist Shin Maeng's digital artwork, accompanied by the powerful spoken word of poet Caleb McCoy.

A description of the artwork, in the artist's own words:

In the front and center is Jesus, the Savior of the world. We see him in the fullness of his majesty, a majesty which includes the scars in his wrists and the crown of thorns on his head. He is the Good Shepherd who leads the multiethnic, diverse family of God into the Final Resurrection. This deliverance echoes the Exodus story, where a pillar of cloud led the Israelites by day and a pillar of fire by night. He is with us, guides us, and welcomes us into his family. At the tomb, we see Mary mourning and then the angels (depicted here as women) point her to Jesus. Jesus welcomes us, with all our scars and wounds, to be a part of his family.
