Kamron Coleman – Tracking Godhead Symbolism from Antiquity to the Latter-days
God speaks to His children in their language and their context, so representations of the Godhead in art and doctrine have changed over time. In Temple Theology, the Godhead is a familial council, revealing a world where humankind descends from holy beings, male and female, who created this life as an educative process of refinement that leads back, after trials, alienation and hardship, to the divine presence.
Temples ritualize ascensions to higher states of exaltation through the atoning sacrifice of a universal savior, Jesus Christ, and through feminine birthing symbols by the Holy Ghost, that culminate in reunification with our Heavenly Father and the genesis of creation: The Tree of Life. Bridging antiquity and the modern LDS temple, Kamron Coleman’s art teaches the precious doctrines of humanity’s literal kinship to our Creator and our destiny to become co-creators with God forever.
“The Anointing” by Kamron Coleman
Kamron Coleman (B 1972) began his professional art career as a permanent gallery artist in Washington State in his early twenties. He spent 19 years as a self-employed stonemason, sculptor, fabricator and finisher in many mediums for the construction industry. He secured Utility and Design patents for innovations in construction and wood-fired pizza ovens of his own manufacture. He went on to stand up the sand casting discipline at the world-renowned Walla Walla Foundry, where he pioneered radical metal casting techniques for elements of some of the most expensive contemporary art in the world.
Since meeting his wife, harpist Bethany Evans, Kamron moved to the Willamette Valley, Oregon, where he has collaborated directly with symphony executives to create symphony-specific fine art for fundraising. Kamron’s symphony work began in 2017 with his first attempt at oil painting of his life, an oil painting of Salem Symphony. In the first two years, he created more than 15 symphony paintings, including Walla Walla Symphony, Wichita Symphony, Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra, Newport Symphony, Oregon Symphony, Spokane Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Rogue Valley Symphony, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Nashville Symphony, and more. Kamron’s work has raised thousands of dollars for symphonies in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Kamron’s greatest joy as an artist is to collaborate with symphony directors and musicians, and with people of faith to create and share art of comprehensible beauty, skillful technique, and intellectual depth.
