Heaven / Earth




Who can bring heaven and earth together has been the question of the ages. Anselm Kiefer’s show in Venice, by the same title, Himmel-Erde ('97), was an attempt at atonement, or an attempt to bring heaven and earth together.

My painting by the same name is also about atonement. The blood of Christ (symbolized by a red ribbon) brings heaven and earth together. It lifts up an egg, a symbol of life, from the earth and the nest with its thorny crown. This crown belongs to the God/man, who came to earth to suffer and die, to be atonement to bring heaven and earth together. The white robe is a symbol of his righteousness.
