TRUST FALLS 01
In this design, I show a character falling into a lonely world. As you can see, there is no hope for this character because he is falling into mountains, leading to his death.
When going through trials and circumstances in life, there is always that moment when it feels like it's the end of the world, as though you are about to lose everything, and no one understands you. Still, through my faith in Jesus, I have learned that everything I go through works together for my good no matter the issue. When going through different struggles, I always find my strength in God. Through this design, I attempt to convey continued hope and endurance, despite the surrounding circumstances, the character falling into the pool of water is that sense of hope.
In this project I wanted the character to be sightless as a depiction of those moments when we feel lost, as though we have lost our sense of direction. That is why it was important to me that the character has no eyes.
SEASONS CHANGE 04
SEASONS CHANGE BUT GOD REMAINS THE SAME
This artwork connects the entire project because it expresses my understanding of who God is and how while seasons can change, God remains the same: loving and faithful. The stars in all the designs symbolize God's presence through all the good and bad situations we go through.
SPIRIT LEADS 05
PATH OF PEACE 06
In moments when I felt like I had no sense of direction, my trust and faith in God were tested, and I was left with no choice but to fully trust God and believe that I am always led by Him.
PATH OF PEACE
Inspired by Luke 1:79 which says, "to shine on those living in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace." Through my darkest fears, pain, and doubt, I see the light that guides me to the path of peace. Overcoming my lost moments as I am found through God's everlasting love for me.
TRUST IN ME BLINDLY 07 & VISION 08
TRUST IN ME BLINDLY
I am known for artistically creating surrealist, photocomposition and collage-based art, so I decided to express my idea of "Sightless" and "Spirit Leads" using that form of art. After creating both artworks, I chose to give them different names while still expressing the message I wanted to communicate.
POETRY by Seyi Oluboba
I possess no ability of my own
Once I am left alone
It's a free fall into the unknown
I think no one understands it
I had no idea, that there, in plain sight
You hovered over me in pure delight
When I stumbled and I fell
Only your hands could keep me from hell
I count myself incredibly lucky
What a time to be made alive
From utter darkness and despair
I was blind till you became my eyes
Lost in space
Till you shipped me off to planet Sozo
So goes the imminent death and
In comes overwhelming life
Through my darkest fears, pain and doubt, I see the light that guides me to the path of peace, overcoming my lost moments as I am found... through your everlasting love
