Blessings

As in all digital artworks, the prominence of the medium threatens to eclipse the subject matter. Their unfamiliar newness and artificial, computer-y look distract the viewer from the subject and raise the question of whether a digital image, created and colored with software, is really art. But to Brysk, "it's every bit as real. It's just a new medium — you can use a pencil to draw, or a computer."

Small cards with devotional thoughts next to each work help refocus the viewer on the subject matter. The card for Ode to Joy echoes Psalm 126: "Our mouths filled with song, our tongues overflowing with joy." Another reads, "It is ours to praise, the beauty of the world." The cards continue: "The divine abounds everywhere and dwells in everything," "The sun rises and the sun sets, and glides back to where it rises."
