The ‘Stillness and Movement in Liturgy' Collection by Joy Jennings is a series of 5 oil paintings on linen. In her impressionist style, Jennings illustrates moments of stillness and gestures of movement, all the while providing a means for the viewer to consider their own participation in liturgy.
Seen together, Jennings' paintings depict everyday moments in liturgy that invite us to silence, sacrament, forgiveness, love, and communion. The intimacy of her figures prompts us to place ourselves within her paintings. and remind us that transcendent moments of faith often occur within the ordinary rhythms of going to church.
