Caritas

35x35", Archival acrylic ink on mylar.

This painting was created during an experimental retreat focused on an in-depth study of Augustinian Rule, the first monastic rule. The idea was to lay the groundwork for the development of the first Artmonk Rule (See http://artmonastery.org/manifesto). A fundamental part of that dive into Augustinian thought, was the investigation of the word "caritas," the root for the word "charity," and its role in community.
