MONOLITHS
 And Retableau

3 Sculpture Proposals



Reverend Stephen Frost PhD

Each painted image here is from 5 to 12 feet high, 4 to 6 feet wide.

Imagine two sided presentations of these paintings in  


MONOLITHS OF CAST GLASS 


12 feet to 15 feet high, at least one foot thick.

Or,


2. IMAGINE 
these larger-than-life paintings hung between several, tall, sealed, bullet-proof slabs of museum glass. 


These set in a park or garden and bound around the edge by a band of stainless steel or brushed aluminum, then, suspended in a steel or aluminum frame.






[96.] Blessed Mother
Oil on Canvas 8' x 6' 1996-99.
Mater Dolorosa, Nuestra Senora...
Mother of the World




[94.+] A NEW INNOCENCE

Oil on Canvas 8' x 6' 1996-99

A naked figure here becomes a discreet symbol for discovering 'the new innocence-' (Theopoeisis)- Clothing being the symbol of the Fall in the Garden of Eden.

Each sculpture below also is waiting for completion with an environment of cast glass or resin.

For the sculpture of Alexander in Siwa, I imagine this head and upper body in one of the fathomless artesian wells of the Oasis of Siwa in the Sahara desert- a representation of such in cast glass.

For the sculptures of St. Francis, and the Theotokos:  Masks, gloves, and halos of glass back and embellish the form.

[155.] Alexander at Siwa

Alexander the Great at the Oasis of Siwa where he was declared a ‘son of God.’.


... imagine this head and upper body in one of the fathomless artesian wells of the Oasis of Siwa in the Sahara desert- a representation of head and upper torso in water- cast glass
