Logistically I suppose my process of making art is driven less by abstractions of faith or politics and more by practical theory: composition and balance and color. It’s not so much that faith influences us as it lives in us. In every circumstance (giving a speech or tying my shoes), I am living and moving and being. This absolves me from ever making the embarrassing effort to gratify God (and the church) by imposing religious content on anything I do.
