About the painting

Oil on strips of canvas, mounted on reclaimed window frame

This work started from an idea of strips of canvas.  The frame came from East Hanney.  On the strips, I painted strips.  Then rising to my conscious mind came the brokenness of the church, which renders me so angry and hurt.  What should be a fellowship meal like any large family, with some members who get on and some who do not, has become that which divides more powerfully than any external agent.  This work is a metaphor for that division with yet the golden reminder that though we divide our selves, Holy Spirit entwines and connects us even so.  The title indicates our inability even to call the single dividing liturgy by a single name.
