The expression "weaving a story" was totally unknown to me until about five years ago when I heard it used for the first time. I still think it is peculiar, but it serves my current artistic direction perfectly.
The Bible, being a collection of stories - and considering stories are woven - I use weaving patterns as the grid on which this series of work is founded.
The second layer in this collage represents fragmentations caused by the differing and contradicting interpretations of these stories by varied factions. They are scattered, broken up and in random order because they fail to make sense in the natural order of logic reasoning that is based on scientific fact. The robotic figure represents mankind, the human-centric dogma of the Christian faith and the entire theory of Intelligent Design.
