Drawing’s really fun when you loosen up and let go. A bit like faith, I guess.
Why, as Christians, should we be content to see Christ only where we expect to see him? Perhaps we should follow the lead of the Gospels themselves and look for him where we least expect him to be, even in the contemporary art world.Daniel A. Siedell, God in the Gallery
When McCahon declared, ‘I will need words,’ in a 1961 letter to poet John Caselberg, he was saying he needed them for something. He wanted his paintings to speak: to cut through, to communicate, to be clear in a new way about human fears and hopes and about how to love authentically. And he saw that painted words were a way to approach spiritual realities and urgencies that resisted conventional picturing.Justin Paton, McCahon Country
