A depiction of a mind - consciousness, rationality, emotions, carnality, mortality, the worst that we are, the best we can become, the abysmal lows, and the highs so pure and dizzying and terrible and beautiful they are birthed in us only by God Himself.
THE ARTIST'S STATEMENT: My art is a transmission from the secret life of the soul as it stands, naked, before Almighty God. It is the admittedly incomplete journal of the trek from where I am now to the perfection I am promised in the face of Jesus Christ.THE ARTIST: Christianna Soumakis has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Chelsea, NY. She has shown in multiple galleries, including the 2/20 Gallery in Chelsea, NY, and the M55 Gallery in Long Island City, NY. Her murals can be seen at the Full Gospel Church of Island Park; she also has done many private commissions. She is a native of Long Island, New York, and is currently pursuing a Masters degree in education from Hunter College. She lives with amicably weird people and oddly lovable creatures who view her as stranger still. They are probably right.
