The Things That Are Not

'Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven' (Matt. 5/3). The foreground, like a ploughed field, waits to be used. It is full of energy and vitality, yet nothing stands proud. The yellow shape in the sky - a crown with a gatehouse - symbolises the promised kingdom.

This is from a series of nine paintings and one conceptual sculpture - 'Attitudes' - based on the Beatitudes.
