Graeme King
"Calvary"

Artist's Statement
"Calvary" is painted with lacquered acrylic on wood panel, in a geometricexpressionist style which rewards quiet contemplation.
The vertical format and the triangular massing of the composition isintended to lift the gaze of the viewer upwards, through the variousstages of human existence, over the 'building blocks' of every daylife and through the beauty of nature (represented in abstract form)towards a higher ideal and the glory of God. "Calvary" is arepresentation of this ideal.


Special Encouragement Award 2005

Chelsea Ryan (9 years old)
"A garden"

Artist's Statement
'Romans 1:20 "Since the creation His invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen and understood through what He has made".
I see the glory of God in His creations, especially all the beautiful flowers.'

 


PEOPLE'S CHOICE 2005
Artist: Rhondda Walters
"Seven days"

Artist's statement
"Every day of our lives we see and feel THE GLORY OF GOD. We are surrounded by His Glory. He has created our world, the universe, everything that grows and every living creature. He has created man and woman and has bestowed upon them the gifts of love, emotion, intelligence, understanding and compassion and above all, He has given them a soul. Surely these miracles are glorious!
My painting of the creation " Seven Days" is abstract and symbolic. I hope that it evokes deep thought and creative interpretation."

Tiana Fry

GODFEST 2006
Theme: In the beginning

WINNER 2006


2006 FIRST PRIZE
STEPHANIE HOLM (age: 16)
"WITHOUT WORRIES"
Lead progresso

My artwork entitled 'Without Worries' reflects on the theme "In theBeginning"
as in the beginning when God created the earth, there were no worries nor was there a need to stress.
I have tried to symbolise this notion through the image of thecarefree young girl as she enjoys the 'beginning' of her life.

 2006 HIGHLY COMMENDED
