GRAND RAPIDS -- Companions is an ongoing series of low-tech digital drawings that explores inequity and injustice across the globe. This is achieved by juxtaposing images of children and/or adults that often include similarities in visual terms, but most importantly reflect tremendous disparity in living conditions and individual circumstances. This references the widely held belief that your prayers will be answered only if you subscribe to Christian beliefs, but otherwise your plea will not be heard. What forces are at work in the belief held by many who call themselves Christians that God is not available to anyone who does not embrace Christianity?
