I am with you always

I am with you always

Nicolas Young has provided a description for his work ‘I am with you always’:

‘I am with you always refers to some of Christ’s last words to his disciples, before His ascension. For the believer, I am with you always exemplifies the spiritual and material principle of God being outside time and space, and before, during and after the culmination of these events. Christ is also inside these events, giving the human race its creative desire for truth. The sand colour queries mankind’s blessing or curse, building a future or a cultural desert. The painting’s purple reflects the ancient world’s symbol of kingship and authority, purple being an expensive dye. The red symbolises Christ’s sacrifice, and also life itself. The green symbolises the natural world, which sustains us, and the grey is the world we have created. The small rising symbols represent light bulbs, in a two way reference; for believers, Christ is the light (truth) of the world, but light also relates to scientific discovery, “ seeing the light.“ Perhaps one of mankind’s greatest scientific achievements is the light bulb, a great blessing without which millions of people would literally still be in darkness. The line of light bulbs is slightly bent, referring to a flawed human race. Science is with us always.’
