Along The Way - Series #4

Along The Way - Series #4, photograph, 13.5" x 16.5"

Thomas Magdi Awad says about his work, "Everything I paint on is something I've found - this is one way that I can be a good steward to the earth.  Also, it is my duty to bring color into the world.  My pieces are reflections of my souls' condition.  I call them "soul scapes."  Through the process of painting I have experienced many facets of my human nature - I have seen great darkness within myself and I have seen great light, but most importantly, I have discovered that I have the capacity to choose between the two.  The world has seen enough darkness; I choose light."
