As an Artist, I am aware that my work in the studio is a disciplined spiritual practice. Matthew Fox suggests that as the artist commits to the discipline of this work, art heals. But what does it mean to be healed? This exhibition is the first stage of a theological inquiry into the question of what it means to live with illness and also desire healing. When we speak of being ‘healed’ from illness, this can often be interpreted as being ‘cured’. When our hope for healing resides in our faith (Your faith has healed you), can we live in faith even if we are not ‘cured’? How can we live with illness and continue to live in faith? What are we hoping for, if we believe that art heals?
