Seek Me and Find Me
Judge Rev, Dr. Beth Dobyn's statement:

There is a strong feeling of chaos and “lostness” in this piece.  The circles also create a feeling of being drawn into order—the “found” moment.  This work echoes the verse from Jeremiah 29:13-14 very well:

      “13When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, 14I will let you find me, says the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.”

All of the detail and variety of shapes in this work draw us to think about the ways in which we may be found, even in the midst of difficult times.
