April 2013 - Living Waters - James Christensen

"Living waters" is an ancient expression. Common in biblical times it referred to springs,
fountains or running streams from which one sought nourishment, as opposed to the
stagnant water found in ditches and pools. In this vertical and uniquely arched canvas
James Christensen’s Living Waters speaks to the beauty of faith and the Holy Spirit,
both of which refresh and invigorate the soul as water does the body.


“I spend time hiking the trails of Mount Timpanogos near my home in Utah, and
throughout the mountain are beautiful little grottos just waiting to be discovered,”
explains Christensen. “It is in places like this that the beauty of what has been
created comes to life. I believe that the purpose of our time here on earth is to
experience mortality, to aspire to holiness by learning to be better, kinder people.
I’m not talking the witnessing of Technicolor miracles or a life of fasting and
penance. What’s important is that we strive, with our bodies, minds and
hearts, to understand and appreciate what we have been given.”

The shapes and sizes of James Christensen’s paintings often have as much to
do with his storytelling as the pictures they contain. The tabernacle shape
achieved by the arched top enhances the spiritual effect of the angelic figure
because we associate this configuration of art with that found in great temples
and cathedrals. Living Waters, in content, shape and form is truly a special
piece of art from James Christensen and surely is as beautiful a
statement of faith as one could hope to display.
