Artist Note

The ‘He’ referred to in the title is Jesus Christ. Spoken by the figure: “When Jesus came back, everyone was scared. They thought he was a comet or something - like the end of the world. But I wasn’t scared. In His presence everything I thought of as light is as shadow. He is that bright. He is that good. I love Him.” She once had a bracelet of multicolored stones draped across her open hand – a symbol of the DNA chain. She is a prayer for the salvation of the generations.
