Scripture

Genesis 1:27

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

1 Corinthians 12:25

25 that there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

From the Artist

"God created mankind in his own image" (Gen 1:27). 

It is the uniqueness of each and every individual which demonstrates that God is a God of infinite variation. And yet, despite the endless differences which lie within humanity God tells those who have committed themselves to following Jesus to be and live as a part of a whole. 

"There should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other" (1 Cor 12:25). 

In visual terms, each of us has been given a unique colour and yet, with the grace and power of God, we must find a way for all of our colours to work together and reach out to those who have not recognised or accepted the source life, the source of colour.

Biography

Katie Musgrove currently teaches 16-18 year old students’ art and design in Liverpool, UK where she has been since 2009. In addition to teaching, Katie enjoys developing her own creative practice. Over time her work has organically evolved into a detailed and unique language of abstract shapes and vibrant colours to represent emotions, abstract concepts and reactions to the world around her. In order to further her understanding of art Katie has recently enrolled on an Artist Teacher Masters course at Liverpool John Moore’s University, which will culminate in an exhibition at The Tate, Liverpool.

That we are a reflection of the infinite and eternal God is amazing and humbling. That the two sexes reflect his image is hard to comprehend. This verse speaks to our need to be creative, to be in relationship with each other males and females.
