"When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known."
- 1 Corinthians 13: 11-12
Through a Mirror Dimly focuses on the tension between revelation and mystery in faith, using both the verses of 1 Cor. 13:11-12 and the themes found in the C.S. Lewis novel, Till We Have Faces. The complexities of faith seem to grow as we age; we exchange simplistic, pure childlike faith for a more nuanced version tempered by doubt and choice. Our works explore this tension through the use of accumulative mark-making and obscured figures. These texts give us hope for the day we “shall know fully,” and until then, this body of work is our effort to better comprehend the fact that faith necessitates a certain measure of mystery and unknowing.
