Sleeper, Lost in Dreams

by James C. Christensen

We are, each of us, angels with only one wing. And we can only fly embracing each other.
Luciano De Crescenzo

In dreams, it is said that wings represent a release of creative forces, that they give us the ability to understand and transcend the human condition. In religion, wings appear on angels, fairies, spirits and demons. In mythology, winged creatures are often messengers of the gods; they are a symbol of freedom and spirituality and a character having one wing is said to be lost in dreams.“

Benediction

by James C. Christensen

“I have always used the floating fish to symbolize the presence of life’s magic,” says Jim Christensen. “Occasionally, I’ve wondered whether these little guys are bringing the magic with them or are the result of it.Who is the recipient of the benediction? Is the angel blessing the fish, or in another way, is the fish
blessing the angel … blessing her by its presence? The Latin on the ring, Beatus est Pisciculus, translates as “Blessed is the Little Fish.” Regardless of which came first, the angel or the fish, it’s important to stop and take the time to be thankful for the magic in our lives.”

Men and Angels

by James C. Christensen

Man, indeed, describes more than he explains; while the angelic spirit sees and understands. Man judges nature in relation to itself; the angelic spirit judges it in relation to heaven. In short, to the spirits everything speaks. — Honoré de Balzac

Artist James C. Christensen’s portrayals of angels, including Cecelia, Sleeper Lost in Dreams and throughout his Saints and Angels series, inspire us to reflect on the angels among us.The high contrast in Men and Angels reminds the viewer that sometimes our mortal world is dark compared to the world of angels.The image also reveals how a visitor can bring a shining light, leading us out of the darkness.
