The work of parenthood

The work of parenthood November 22, 2014

This is the seventh in a series of ten posts featuring artwork from the Christians in the Visual Arts exhibit, “Work: Curse or Calling?” Many thanks to Margot Rogers and CIVA for allowing us to feature these beautiful, intriguing, and challenging pieces here at MISSION:WORK.  Please check out CIVA’s website for more information on scheduling the exhibit for your own church, school, or workplace, and to see the other images from the exhibit (there are 28 in all.)  Today’s featured work is:

No Name
Shin-hee Chin (McPherson, KS)
Mixed media
2010
9.5” x 7.5”

Shin-hee Chin’s No Name portrays the bond between a mother and child, and is expressed most in Chin’s artistry of brushwork and beautifully designed asymmetrical balance—so beautifully designed, like C.S. Lewis would say, we want “to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.”

Chin, Shinhee- NoName
