Two Sisters
ANNIVERSARY DIPTYCH CANVASCanvas

NOTES: “Homer tells us that ‘winged words’ are successful communications,” begins James Christensen, “and that words without wings are not as well understood and do not have the power to touch or move a listener. Two Sisters was created as part of a show I put together, Winged Words, which was based on this idea of communication and on our attitudes towards each other.

“It began on a trip to Italy. I was intrigued by the Fra Angelico frescoes painted in the monks’ cells in the Church of San Marco in Florence. Many of the paintings had words of scripture, written in Latin, issuing from the mouths of the characters. I became fascinated with the idea, so much so that it became the theme for an entire show.”

“The first idea that came to me for the diptych Two Sisters was somewhat cliché: the poor woman is virtuous and the rich woman, elitist; one good, one bad. But, then I thought about the inherent worth of all people, the wealthy as well as the poor. Both have gifts to offer to the world, each giving according to their ability. This is symbolized by the flowers and Latin words hovering above the outstretched hands.

“The ornately adorned woman balances a strawberry plant which symbolizes the good works of a righteous person. Notice that the fruit itself is not quite ripe as her gifts to the world have not yet been fully realized. The Latin reads 'Caritas:' the rich sister can offer charity. The more meekly attired sister holds a little white violet, a symbol of humility. The Latin above reads 'Spes – Fides:' faith and hope.”

Rich in symbolism, these two paintings make a warm and wise statement: regardless of our specific circumstances, we all have a worthy contribution to make to our world!

James Christensen bio

Inspired by the world's myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen wants his work to add up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes "curious" looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he likes to think of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates-be it a porcelain, fine art print or book-he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen's philosophy that "Believing is Seeing." Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then, he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen has been designated as a "Utah Art Treasure," one of Utah s Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governor s Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensen s artwork to Utah s cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazine s Hall of Fame and is an Honored Alumnus at Brigham Young University for his contributions to fine art and education. James and his wife Carole, co-chair the Mormon Arts Foundation. He is a frequent guest lecturer at Brigham Young University, and has also given workshops to large companies and organizations on the subject of creative thinking, including the California Art Educator s Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care. In addition to his fine art limited editions on paper and canvas, Christensen s work can be found in five acclaimed books and a series of interactive journals and in three dimensions in porcelain and hand-crafted limited-edition bronze sculptures
