From Darkness to Light by Simon Dewey
About this Image:
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. - John 12:46
I have always been taken by the dark and light used in Rembrandt’s paintings and the old masters’ use of shadows and light. I used the shadows and light coming into this scene to symbolize the man that was in darkness and, through the healing of our Savior, was brought to the light. Although I’m sure that Christ was in bustling streets with people all around him, I liked the idea of a quiet scene; perhaps Christ had seen this man who was blind and came back alone, without ceremony or public display, and healed this man who had had this condition for his entire life.
About the Artist:
Simon has quietly sought to celebrate the life and mission of Jesus Christ. His artistic journey began in London, England as a freelance illustrator. In 1997 he entered the world of fine art with the release of "He Lives". Since then, Simon has become known for his exquisitely detailed and delicate portraits capturing moments from the tender to the magnificent. Many marvel at the masterful way he portrays the love and compassion in the face of the Savior and the devotion in the eyes of the believers.
