Lent: The Vector of Vices and Virtues - Series Art

"7 Deadly Sins" by Andrew Manning

Lenten Series Artwork

The obscurity of the face and its assimilation with the surrounding areas of darkness and light reflect the anonymity that our sin brings over us. Light and darkness both act upon the static, expressionless face, making it appear helpless and apathetic. On account of  the reflectivity of the surface, the appearance of both the figure and his surroundings continually shift. At whatever angle it is viewed from, dark fades into light and light fades into dark. We are in a world where good and evil are at war, both around us and within us. The hope is that as the light of Christ becomes brighter and brighter, what appears as darkness in our lives will also reflect that light.
