THE MERIT OF METAPHOR

essay | 2016 | 20 pages

This is a short essay that underscores everything I do creatively. In brief, this is an explanation of why I do what I do, but it is more than that. It's a brief look at the value of metaphor in the wide sense of the word, meaning something known that points to the unknown; and Art (general) is precisely this. As a Christian, what I do stems from knowledge and love of Christ. He is the foundation of reality whether we believe Him or not (John 1:3), and so deserves to be made known; not only because He has created, but also because He has provided salvation.

Before this blurb becomes the length of the essay, let me please ask that if you do digest only one thing I have made, let it be this. It is the reason for so many others.
