Welcome to my RB Gallery.
I paint what I like…but I find I am drawn towards painting people more than anything else, which perhaps the following quote summarizes well.
"…we can see a person as simply a material object, something to look at, an “it”, or we can look into a person and enter the sacredness of their humanity so that they become a “Thou.” "(Shane Claiborne “The Irresistible Revolution”, commenting on the ideas of Martin Buber in his work “I and Thou”.)
And again in this quote by Henri Nouwen “In the face of the oppressed I recognize my own face, and in the hands of the oppressor I recognize my own hands. Their flesh is my flesh, their blood is my blood, their pain is my pain, their smile is my smile.”
