_Message :: set apart + together
set apart :: Each square in this piece represents a life uniquely created and set apart by God for a purpose. Visually, that life is represented by a painting in the pattern of individual fingerprints.
together :: Each square is situated separately in the piece (symbolizing individuality), but the squares are also joined together by metal to form the overall body of the piece (symbolizing the importance of individuals in the body of Christ.)
Contributing Artists :: House of Hope + Community
Prior to creating this artwork, eight blank canvases were left at the House of Hope KC for the founder and ministry residents to form foundations of written scriptures and prayers for the artists to paint upon.
The individual canvases are now paintings in the shape of an actual fingerprint of a resident. Event goers were invited to put their fingerprint on the frame of the artwork, indicating their belief in the vision and ministry of House of Hope KC.

Nine individual square oil paintings framed in angle iron are arranged and connected in three rows of three squares each. A large metal filigree sculpture that reads “House of Hope” crowns the nine squares. The ministry’s foundational scripture is inscribed at the bottom of the piece. From painters and designers to lettering artists and carpenters, this artwork requires a variety of experts to achieve the end result.
