This is the latest (just completed this afternoon) in a series I've been calling Religion as a Chain of Memory. The image of me and my father is being reused from my prototypes in the first posting. This print uses the first question from the Heidelberg Catechism, still memorized by my father from his youth. I too studied it in my youth...although it is not lodged quite as firmly as it is for him. In a sense, that is what these pieces are about...human effort to convey meaning, morality, religious creeds and other confessions of faith from one generation to another. Thus far, they just happen to be those that my father has shared with and embodied for me during my life.
