THE PRAYER OF DIMIETRIUS ( BM158 )
painting on 30"x30" canvas ( n/a )

This painting symbolizes faith in spiritual values. The style and mood is almost that of a cathedral. Quiet and dark, the atmosphere is that of solace. An angel prays not towards the viewer but away, in respect to the higher being. The audience is put into a voyeuristic stance, the stained glass used as an opaque barrier between the viewer and the angel. We, the audience, are looking in through the stained glass at the quiet figure praying. Thus, the voyeuristic standpoint is established.
