RESURRECTION/EXODUS  1996 was a commissioned by Holtkoetter International,
a German chandelier manufacturer, for their USA headquarter offices.
The work was inspired by the Exodus story of FAITH 
as one enters the wilderness:
following a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.

X

The background and foreground oscillates with the various elements:
radiance of the gold and the position of the sun and the position of the viewer.
The background color is a custom mix of deep blue violet purple/black
which was applied in layers over the gold- back and forth,
which gives the work depth.

X

There are five panels- five being the number of love.
The panels were affixed to an overhang of a balcony in the front lobby.
The South light washed the paintings and each painting was a revelation
of gold- an aura of gold.

X

The viewer is not a spectator but is involved with the revelation and the shadow of the work.
A pas-de-deux.
An improvisational exponential disclosure of attending and opening/offerings.
Spectacular + intimate epiphanies.

X

Slowly and suddenly, the work shifted into light and then to material.
A suspension and a transformation of the ordinary into a sublime moment.

This major work was dedicated to my beloved doctor: the late Dr. Mark B. Coventry of the Mayo Clinic.
He looked at the x-rays of my bone and always saw my spirit.
We were in concert for decades.
Before he died he asked me to make two promises to him:
Please PROMISE me TWO things:
“Cathy, ONLY let those who honor and respect you come near
and
ALWAYS remain an artist.”

I dedicate my offerings in THE AUTOMATIC MESSAGE exhibition to:
the late Dr. Mark B. Coventry; my late parents;
my heart family, who sustain me and are my hurricane lamps,
and
to my collectors
whose refined sensibilities could hear
the song, hymn and gospel of my art.

A special thank you to Peter Hannah; Justin Hedstrom; Jim Ross;
Michele Jansen; Kevin Barnes; John Schuerman and Lowell Pickett.
