This painting began the series Global City Babel. The Hebrew words for Living Word are carved on top of an appropriated image of Bruegel’s Tower of Babel, suggesting that the global city will one day be united through the Living Word. As a base, I used the musical score from the American folk hymn How Firm a Foundation and text from various languages. The frame itself is part of the painting with the circular sovereign eye of God over-seeing the events of mankind.
This painting was included in an exhibit at the Museum of Biblical Art in New York City and included in the exhibit catalogue, The Next Generation: Contemporary Expressions of Faith.
