The Sun Casts Fire on the Earth by Andrew Burch
Andrew Burch explained the painting and its title this way:
"...I had read that [phrase] from the Gospel of Thomas and I
just liked the way it sounded and I liked the idea of it. I
think that it's actually 'the SON casts fire on the earth' so I
just changed it to SUN. The idea was that a woman was in
an almost prayerful pose recognizing that the sun
nourished the earth while that sun was leaving. At the same
time it referenced the Son of God so she could be in
prayerful thankfulness. Also the terrain looks burned, so
there's the idea that the sun actually burned the earth."
Andrew Burch's work has been shown in galleries in
Raleigh, N.C., and Myrtle Beach, S.C., including two
exclusive showings.
