Liz Lemon Swindle - THE HOLY MEN -  LIMITED EDITION PRINT Published by the Greenwich Workshop

Cameras roll and actors proffer gifts to the Child born to be King of Kings. With wonder and awe the child gazes upon the unusual gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. The expression on the child’s face is captured with dozens of camera flashes before the scene ends and the actors discard their elaborate robes.

For Utah artist Liz Lemon Swindle, this is the beginning. “By studying photographs from a dramatization of this moment between the wise men and the child,” Liz says, “I am able to better understand the sacred events that brought the Holy Men to Bethlehem. Their costly gifts to Jesus were not typical presents extended to a child to make him merry. They were gifts for a ruling monarch, in reverence to his birth as King. I created this work based on Matthew 2:1-16 which describes Christ as a young child when first visited by the wise men. The scene is often portrayed in the stable but according to the Scriptures, it could have been 18 to 24 months later."

"The Holy Men" is the fourth work of art to be published in the Son of Man Series. Portraits of the mortal life of Jesus Christ, from the first scene of Mary and the babe Jesus to the Holy Men — referring not only to the wise men but Jesus himself, has become the hallmark, if not the signature, of the artist.

Liz Lemon Swindle
Liz Lemon Swindle has a deep, abiding faith that she feels blessed to share through her art. A lifelong Utah resident, she studied fine arts at Utah State University. She worked for several years as a set designer and painter for the Osmond Studios television production company. As her family grew (she and her husband Jon Swindle today have five children), she saw the need for a more flexible career and decided to focus on oil painting. In the early 1980s she tutored under renowned wildlife artist Nancy Glazier and soon after established her own impressive reputation as a wildlife painter, participating in shows at major galleries in the central and western United States. However, Lemon Swindle became increasingly discontent, feeling artistically and spiritually unfulfilled. In October 1988 she reached a turning point when she submitted a portrait of children to the National Arts for the Parks competition and received the coveted Founders' Favorite award. She realized then that there was an audience for her portrait painting and by the early 1990s she had devoted herself to the topic closest to her heart: her faith. A one-woman show of her Christian art traveled to cities nationwide in the summer of 1997 and a book of her paintings, "She Shall Bring Forth a Son" was published in 1998.
