This series is informed by the biblical account of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11). Each painting includes an image of Pieter Bruegel's Tower of Babel (1567).
I find this Babel image relevant to our culture and the postmodernist belief that language is power and necessary to create one's own truth. Postmodernism is anti-foundational. It promotes relativistic language, where the meaning of words become merely social constructs.
The biblical Tower of Babel account points to the God who created language, who spoke/breathed the heavens and the earth into existence, and who communicates with us through the Incarnation, through Christ, "the Word made flesh," the living Word.
