Upper School Arts

The 2017-2018 Theme art was designed and created by ECS Artist in Residence/Art Department Chair David Butler who explained the background and thought process behind it:

When I looked at the verse, I looked at the nouns…Joy, peace, hope…I was drawn to the idea of Hope. There is a painting by George Frederick Watts called Hope that shows a blind person listening to a harp with only one string. It reminded me that hope is blind or often unseen. Abound - reminded me of teeming… as in Genesis that God made the bodies of waters teem with fish. I used braille patterns to spell hope on the water that the fish are swimming in - they can't see the water, but it is necessary for life and abundance. The fish food (looks like bubbles) spell “joy” and “peace” in braille as well. So God is filling the fish with joy and peace as they abound in hope (water). . . . -David Butler, Artist in Residence
