Artist Statement

A table is set before us. Alms and dreams—both appear there, in offering to each other. Your interest, mine. There is wisdom in walking with the wise; you’ve accompanied me here. Humility builds and we find ourselves taller [in that of the smaller]. R: Proverbs 13:14, 20, Philippians 2:3-4

About the collection: 

Forged across forty-nine days between Easter and Pentecost, this faithful journey represents a person, a prayer and a painting a day-examining the heart of hope and unearthing beauty as God’s defiant agenda.

About the Artist

Mary Spacapan

Mary Spacapan’s work is strongly gestural—using colour, composition and rich, buildable texture to explore the animated nature of the whenua. Painter, writer and sculptor, she creates as she experiences the world: tiny inputs collected, placed—a curation of moments over time. Every mark is movement.
