Weaving Life/Godde, Beauty and Redemption by Julia Weaver
The objective of this work of art thesis was to create a body of art that embodies a redemptive, restorative quality, enter into a contemplative experience with scripture and thereby more deeply inform the work of art, share the art in several ministry contexts and begin to answer the question, how does beauty redeem? Nine woven garments are completed and have been shared in four ministry contexts. My understanding of redemption was expanded by liberation theologians. The beatitudes and fruit of the Spirit proved to be a strong foundation for the work of art. Beauty redeems.
