Final Authority

 Final Authority


Printed with Pigmented Inks

I had done a drawing of this man that I brought into Photoshop.  My  concept  was to photograph a chalkboard of a mathematician’s numerical computations at the University of Victoria. 

And then to layer the equation behind the mathematician.  With my electronic pen, I wrote the pi symbol used by mathematicians to represent the ratio of a perfect circle which is 3.14 as the best science can do.   

I added .02 as a tongue in cheek gesture to get the infinity (Christian fish symbol) and salvation verse of (John) 3:16 which is the challenge of the Final Authority.  It is 81/2” X 11 inches.

Our intellect is limited in comparison to the omniscience of God.
