Forgive Us Lord Limited Edition - "It is said that you must suffer for your art. Dean Mitchell understands the sentiment, but is not ruled by it. But the images of the life he sees around him are filled with emotion, whether it is a painting of a plain, light- splashed, whiteboard-paneled Southern church or a woman bowing in prayer. It is etched in the portraits of his grandmother s face, who raised him from the age of eleven months in a small town near Tallahassee, Florida. As a child, Mitchell knew he wanted to be an artist, a seemingly impossible choice for a boy in his circumstances, but he bought a set of oils when he was twelve and won two awards in the very first art competition he entered. He started painting in watercolor when he was attending the Columbus School of Art and Design in Ohio and his first job was teaching art at a Boy s Club for ten dollars an hour. Things changed when he started entering his paintings in competitions regularly. His exceptional ability in showing a special... MORE Forgive Us Lord Limited Edition

“The title Forgive Us Lord is an umbrella statement,” Dean Mitchell begins. “I meant it as an acknowledgement by us of the fact that we have, over time and as a people, fallen short of the grace of God. Look at all He has given us: this beautiful world, full of wonderful people and limitless opportunity. And we humans, in return, have introduced into war, racism and a variety of petty vices. We, as individuals, have the ability to change this but that will only begin when we admit we have done something that requires change.”
“This is my cousin, Caroline. She embodies the beauty and strength in all of us. I have dressed her in white because it represents purity. White is also the color you wear when you are baptized, a symbol of cleansing from original sin and it is in asking for forgiveness that you take the first steps of a spiritual rebirth.”
“Mr. Mitchell is a virtual modern-day Vermeer of ordinary black people given dignity through the eloquence of his concentration and touch,” wrote The New York Times’ Michael Kimmelman. “Mr. Mitchell's works are subtly tuned character studies with an eye toward abstract form and charismatic light.”
“Eloquence of concentration and touch” expresses perfectly the entire scope of Dean Mitchell’s work. He can divine in a landscape a setting’s soul as clearly as he portrays the depths of human spirit. He is able to uncover in any subject he addresses a central sense of faith, trust, and perseverance.
Dean Mitchell’s first two releases with The Greenwich Workshop, Rowena and Psalms 4:1, are highly sought-after collector items and nearly impossible to find. These extremely personal and evocative works of art touched us deeply with their riveting balance of human strength and human frailty. With Forgive Us Lord Dean Mitchell presents us again with a mesmerizing portrait of our promise and potential.
