Charity, the opposite of Greed, evokes a sense of giving to others in an overabundance of riches, to every and anybody who needs it. In this piece, “riches” are depicted as gold, but the gold pours from the figure’s body to suggest that the true riches of charity are seen when one gives of themselves to others.

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.
