"In the Clefts of the Rock is inspired by the
verse in Song of Solomon 2:14
O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock,
in the secret places of the stairs, let me see
thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice,
and thy countenance is comely.
This is speaking of people that have chosen Jesus Christ
and his work on the cross as their sanctuary.
Our Lord, in his last prayer before the crucifixion prays,
Holy father, keep through thine own name, those has given me,
that they may be one as we are one. While I was in the world
I kept them in thy name, those that thou giveth me, I have kept and none of them is lost...
Father, I will that they also, whom thou has given me be with
me where I am; that they behold my glory, which thou has given
me, for thou loveth me before the foundation of the world."
Manuel Nez was born in 1956 into a family versed in the arts and Latino culture. His father, Manuel Nez, Sr., was a well known singer and song writer, who recorded nine Spanish language albums in the 1950s.
Nez is a painter, designer, and art director whose passion for art remains obvious. His experience as an illustrator and graphic designer within the fashion industry have resulted in the creation of a series of dynamic paintings. His skillful exectution is achieved through a variety of techniques and mediums including drawing upside down and the use of 24 karat gold leaf.
He is a graduate of the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and the Otis Parsons Institute in Los Angeles. He now produces artwork of unmatched skill depicting women postured with the Lords strength and costumed in classical attire. Each piece is inspired by a biblical verse and they give you a sense of spiritual peace. The depth in his artwork is also apparent from the frequent use of symbols such as: gold bars, halos and serpent skeletons.
My images are of strong women. Beautiful, but not exploited wrestling with the underlying conflict of what life is versus what it should be.
