How We Believe
My picture has been split up into 3; the first is 'Hope from God', the next one is 'Hope from the people' and the last but not the least is 'Hope in our minds.' I did it like this because "Hope" comes from different places and different people, but I put it together so it looks like they are working in harmony and together to make a better world.
First of all, Hope from God. In the picture hope from God is the bright yellow glow coming from behind the girl. I tried showing how God beams down on people wanting them to live happy and peaceful, smothering us in a warm light. The light is blending into the dark background showing that hope relies on God but it is fading showing we can't always rely on God because sometimes He can let you down.
Next, hope from the people. We all rely on trusting our neighbours and that trust is what builds the foundation of a community. We hope that if we work together we can find a bright and stable future, this is what the girl represents but it also shows care for the world and how we smother the world in our hope.
Lastly, Hope in our minds. The cloth I tried to make look like clouds to represent optimism. I wanted to show how our hope is pure and open to opportunity and how that protects us.
I decided on this piece of work because it take's more than one part of hope and puts them together to that the hopes work together as one.
