This is a dynamic symbolic work depicting Hope. A hooded girl in a freezing landscape beholding light (sun, moon, stars) falling from the skies. She brings these to another at the edge of the cliff where light is dim, finite and extinguishing.
My artwork has four scenes from the Bible which depicts hope or promise.
Noah’s Ark: God promises to never flood the earth again: He set His rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Him and the earth.
The Birth of Jesus Christ: It gives us hope that a Saviour has come to save all of us from evil.
Jesus Christ feeds the 5000: This gives us hope that Jesus will always be there for us when we need him.
Jesus Christ’s resurrection: Jesus promised his disciples that after 3 days, He will rise from the dead.
Paglaom is a Bisaya (Filipino dialect) word which means Hope. “Paglaom Always” is an abstract illustration of a rainbow in dark hue. We remember the rainbow as a prominent symbol of hope in the Bible. “Paglaom Always” encourages us to hope at all times and cling to the Lord at all cost. God sometimes takes what is perfect and subjects us to a humble status so that a greater good might be accomplished. Take hope! This stage of suffering is merely a transitional period. Trust in His timing and His beautiful plans for you.
