Second Arc was inspired by Psalm 46 and Galatians
Psalm 46:1 and 3
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled...
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,faith, Meekness, temperence: against such there is law.
The Second Arc is about faith and the qualities it imparts to true believers. Surrounded by roaring and troubled waters (the unsettled people and nations of the world), she is sustained by her faith. Her faith has protected her and wrapped her in the biblical fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. These qualities are born of her like fruit from a tree.
Manuel Núñez was born in 1956 into a family versed in the arts and Latino culture. His father, Manuel Núñez, Sr., was a well known singer and song writer, who recorded nine Spanish language albums in the 1950’s.
Núñez is a painter, designer, and art director whose passion for art remains obvious. His experience as an illustrator and graphic designer within the fashion industry have resulted in the creation of a series of dynamic paintings. His skillful exectution is achieved through a variety of techniques and mediums including drawing upside down and the use of 24 karat gold leaf.
He is a graduate of the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and the Otis Parsons Institute in Los Angeles. He now produces artwork of unmatched skill depicting women postured with the Lord’s strength and costumed in classical attire. Each piece is inspired by a biblical verse and they give you a sense of spiritual peace. The depth in his artwork is also apparent from the frequent use of symbols such as: gold bars, halos and serpent skeletons.
“My images are of strong women. Beautiful, but not exploited… wrestling with the underlying conflict of what life is versus what it should be.”
