Caritas, 2013

Ink on vellum, 60×60″

The original work, Caritas, was painted by hand with a tiny paintbrush without the assistance of rulers of any kind. I made it during a silent retreat while living at the Art Monastery in Labro, Italy. The Artmonks who lived there yearround brought in two Jesuit priests to lead us in a week of silently contemplating monastic rule. We were engaging in this study in order to further develop the Art Monastery’s own monastic rule.

It was a powerful week for me and for hours each day, after studying the Rule of St Benedict, I would paint with that in my heart. One of the words that came up quite a lot was Caritas, which I translate as community. This painting is about the experience of living in community, intentionally and aiming the collective life at higher ideals.
