A picture of life and death and life again, a painting of the surfaces of reality.
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.
