Psalm 27: Concealment

As you look at the painting by Alyse Radenovic entitled “Psalm 27: Concealment,” please consider the following questions:

  1. What strikes you about this painting as you look at it for the first time?
  2. Radenovic has chosen to place the letters kaf and zayin in red (equaling 27), while all of the rest of the letters of the psalm appear to be scattered in black, white, and shades of silver. Why do you think this is so?
  3. We invite you to reread the psalm and offer your own visual response to it, choosing a word, phrase, an image, or the psalm as the whole as your primary source.
