The twelve I AM paintings were on display at Koffee on Audubon in New Haven in June 2011.

Each painting contains one phrase from The Thunder, Perfect Mind, a poem from the ancient Nag Hammadi manuscripts, found buried in a field in Egypt in 1945. Its origins are a mystery, but it may have come from 2nd century Alexandria. The phrase in each painting is written below the image.

All are ink and acrylic on 1 inch thick wood boards. All are approximately 1 foot wide. Click on an image to see it larger. Exact dimensions and detail photos on request. Prices are listed below each image. For questions or purchase email Linda at merfire@gmail.com.
