About "Approaching Your Throne"

SUBJECT MATTER:
The formal, single lady resides within a confusing space and knows her anchor lies at the throne of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. She wants to surrender her pride and self-focus.

SYMBOLISM:
The illogical, directional layout of space creates the sense of turbulent confusion that an insecure, vulnerable, single woman can feel when she focuses on her isolation.

The embellished chair is ‘seated at the right side’ representing the throne of Christ.
The three blood-coloured wine glasses represent the Trinity.
The fabric on the bottom left is the symbol of surrender.

The shiny metal pole points to the anchor.
The haloed lights on either side of the woman are like loving angels showing her the way.

The space is warm and enclosed.
It envelopes her.
Once she has found her rock, she no longer stands alone.

About Shelley

Shelley Reeves

Shelley Reeves completed her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, in 1994, majoring in Painting, History of Art, and Psychology. Her 4th Year Final Exam Self-Portrait was purchased by the University at the end of that year.
She completed a Higher Diploma in Education-Secondary at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth in 1995. Teaching secondary school Visual Art for 13 years resulted in numerous teens being inspired to pursue careers in Fine Art, Architecture, Fashion/Jewellery/Graphic Design, Animation, Advertising and Teaching.

Her deep respect for Scripture and Spirituality forms the core of her artistic inspiration, together with social interactions with an array of people from various cultural backgrounds. Her psychological understanding of the heart of man continues to ignite in her a compassionate, humble and cognitive love for humanity.

Shelley chose to stay at home to take care of her two energetic toddlers when they arrived in Dec 2010 and Mar 2012.

She plans to move on to produce Fine Art that seemlessly and abstractly reflects her innate passion for Home Interiors, Construction and Design, combining these aesthetics with her maturing spirituality.
