Visual artist Joshua Cave has explores the theme of "Fools" from the perspective of Galatians 3:1-5.
Artist Curated by
The Spirit Received through Faith
1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. 5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Sincerity seems a most elusive human quality, capable of inhabiting the words, acts and works of an individual, elevating them beyond their human origin. I pray I learn to sincerely apply the gifts I have been given.
Joshua Cave was raised with an overly encouraging mother who curated the refrigerator with enthusiasm. He responded to her faith in him: drawing himself through high school, into an art major, and -- to his own surprise -- finally into a full-time fine art pursuit. He now spends most of his time dancing the lines between painting, sculpture and installation, always in pursuit of a cohesive truth that defies distinct aesthetic or conceptual clarification. He lives and works in The Bronx, NY.
