St. Vincent Catholic Arts Competition

I am so thrilled to share with you all that my 8 piece collection of the Seven Sorrows of Mary was  selected to be part of the 2018 7th Annual St. Vincent Catholic Arts Exhibit/Competition in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Honestly, just making it in was exciting. The exhibit is over but what a great way to end the year.

Liturgical Art

Since the early church to present times, liturgical art has been used to spread God’s word and show the passion of his love.  The humble cross or a simple drawing of a fish, were the early symbols for Christianity, followed by sculptures and paintings.

I continue the tradition in sharing the gospel by choosing images reflecting scripture or a snapshot of a scene from the bible.  Each piece I create is created through prayer.  This is one of the many ways I stay connected to God.  It is my hope that a piece will help elevate your own prayer life and connection with God.

Technique

The technique I use is called “Repujado”.  This is an ancient art of embossing or pressing shapes into metal to create a design on aluminum, tin, copper or brass. It arrived in Mexico during the Spanish colonization. It was used out of the necessity to protect the icons of the churches from the chandelier smoke, the environment and the time itself. Mexican and South American artisans have used copper and tin for centuries to produce jewelry and ornamental items.  Religious images were embossed on tin metal sheets initially.
