Humility
Mixed Media
51” x 24”

Humility, the opposite to Pride, is a figure bare of any clothing or adornments, only their bones show through. The figure’s bones burn like candles melting away in order to show their lack of concern for their own appearance, and instead focus on being a light for others. The figure holds a broken mirror in which their flame still reflects brightly, this symbolizes a low concern for one’s appearance in order to have an impact on greater aspirations.

It is said by many that all people have evil deep inside of them, but I believe that on the opposite side of that coin, all people have a potential for true goodness in them as well. Portrayals of the 7 Deadly Sins have been made throughout the ages, but in order to promote love and celebrate the light that we all have within us, each virtue that I’ve portrayed displays a trait that counters a sin in the form of large-scale digital print with ink and gold-leaf embellishing.
