Surprised by Grace: God's Relentless Pursuit of Rebels - Tullian Tchividjian
Hawaiian artist Dennis McGeary depicts Jonah's condition well in 2001 abstract painting entirely in black, white and gray. A mass of contoured lines takes up nearly all the painting, suggesting simultaneously both the interior massiveness of a whale-like creature and the swirling waves of the storm. Almost hidden in the center, a few lines are bent up, -saillike- the tiny ship in a storm. Along the uprising lines on a lower side we see a man falling, his hands raised uselessly as he descends where he does not wish to go--Jonah cast overboard. Finally, set off in an undersized black square in the opposite corner, is the small, hunkered form of the swallowed prophet, brooding over what has happened to him. How he must wonder at God's design in all this!

Ch 2 News: Interview with Jennifer Seville, Curator of Western Art, Honolulu Museum of Art Concerning The Story of Island
Khon: Let's start with this gentleman named Dennis McGeary.
Seville: We have two paintings by Dennis and his work is notable because he's like Anselm Adams, He's looking at nature, but at a truly cosmic level, taking nature at it's most elemental forces, with wind, with water, as you look at these paintings there's a sense of a vortex, a deluge of an avalanche of just nature swirling around.It's a very painstaking technique as he moves his brush with his pigment to create the sense of movement of the air, the water, whatever he is dealing with, to create this sense of the clash, the meeting, thee flow of nature.
