This week we are excited to present a new work by photographer Erin Mulvehill, who considers our Summer 2012 theme – Water – in a different way, in response to Psalm 42:3: “My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me all day long, ‘Where is your God?'”
Erin’s work aims to explore the human connections and subtle nuances that whisper into the ear of our every day. We are captivated by the ethereal, tragic implication of Erin’s photography, especially in her recent “to be reborn” series, with its perplexing yet warm imagery.
From the Artist: i found this passage very philosophical, which drew me to it immediately. in my visual depiction of the piece i chose to show a blindfolded girl with her arms reaching toward the skies. this gesture can be one of praise and thanksgiving, yet it can also be one of frustration or defeat. I like the ambiguity of this gesture, as I feel the quote itself is somewhat ambiguous in that it has the ability to read quite differently based on one’s personal beliefs.
To experience another response to this passage, listen to Deep Calls to Deep, a song by Spark & Echo.
