O MOTHER MARY INTERCEDE FOR ME by Chris Fung



Chris Fung's 3rd solo exhibition of new paintings titled
O MOTHER MARY INTERCEDE FOR ME

"Many times Creativity will take us to the Cross."  (Pope Francis)

We pray our own creativity follows God's Creation
From Genesis (through sin, enslavement, exodus, pride, prophecy, hope)
to the Crucifixion of the Cross: the Epicenter of the Universe.

The Cross: the Supreme Intersection and Reconciliation of Values of
the Temporal and the Infinite; Man's Image of God and God's Own Image;
Twisted by the painter: tempted and formed into Idolatry
Masculine/Feminine/Homosexual Ideals and the Reality of One Flesh
Reversed and reworked by the painter informed with Self Hatred.

The Center of the Cross: Peace
Zero, zero to the annihilist who observes from the outside
True Love to the christian who perceives from within
The Apex of the lowly servant crucified to Christ
Communion with God.

The Foot of the Cross: Mother Mary
O Mother Mary Intercede for me
Pray for me I do not know how to pray.

"Don't Wait To Be Great." (anonymous)
