Description

After Jesus rose from the dead, and after His Ascension into Heaven, Mary of Magdala traveled about the country proclaiming the Gospel and announcing to all the good news that “Christ is risen!” Arriving in Rome she sought an audience with Tiberius Caesar, intending to complain about the treatment of the people of Judea under the governance of Pontius Pilate.

Mary was born into a wealthy and influential family, and so her request for an audience was granted. It was customary at the time to bring a gift to the emperor under these circumstances, each according to her means. Mary knelt before Caesar and held our her gift, a snow white egg.
“Christ is risen!” she said.

Tiberius was familiar with the events surrounding the death of Jesus and was slightly amused.

“My child,” he said to her, “how can a man rise from the dead? That is no more possible than it is for the egg you hold to turn bright scarlet.” Before he uttered the last word he watched in awe as the egg Mary held turned a bright red.

“Christ is risen,” she said again. “New life rising from a sealed tomb, just as new life rises from a sealed egg.”

With such miraculous evidence, Caesar could no longer dismiss the stories he heard. He listened as Mary recounted the many abuses of Pilate and his soldiers, all performed in the name of Caesar. In response he had the governor reassigned to Vienne, where it is said that Pilate died an unpleasant death.

For this reason, from that day to this, Christians have marked the Resurrection by giving each other brightly colored eggs, a symbol of new life rising from a sealed tomb.

Art should serve a purpose, it should serve the people of a community, and above all, it should be beautiful. The idea of art for art’s sake is a relatively modern idea. Throughout the 40,000 years (give or take) of human history, with the exception of the last 150 years, art has served the people.

I believe that all the gifts God gives to us are to be used to bring people back to Him, and art is no exception.

The particular expression of the gifts God has given me has led me to draw on the rich cultural tradition of Christian religious and sacred art, reinterpreting those images for a contemporary audience. It is also important that the imagery stay true to the Magisterial teachings of the Church, teachings founded on those ancient traditions. I pray that, through my art, people may feel connected to the invisible world, the world of the sacred, the world of the divine, and find their way back to the loving God who created us to be with Him always.
