Materially Connected Creation / acrylic and gel pen on 10"x10" wood panels / copyright Jennifer Neal 2018
Coffee + Ritual + Creation story in Genesis 1... my idea was to tie those together for my final project in a worship arts class at Fuller. I wanted to see what it was like to think about faith and create art starting from a material based ritual rather than from abstract thought and belief. I was surprised how fun creating this project was and how connected I felt to humanity and creation. The simple yet nearly universal ritual embodies so many stories lived out in concrete, physical ways that I found it impossible to claim that I made a cup of coffee alone.
