Claudia Lopez, a contemporary artist based in Surrey whose commissions can be found in offices, restaurants and homes in Colombia, from where she comes, London, Paris, Venice and Texas, is offering one of her works for auction to help persecuted Christians.
Claudia, who previously donated a painting for auction to Release International in 2018, has produced and sold many works of art both of her own inspiration and by commission.
The painting, Rooted in Love, pictured, which is being offered for auction, is a diptych in mixed media (oil and sands on board) measuring 62cm x 124cm.
Claudia said: ‘I love painting trees. I see holy men and women as trees rooted and established in love, full of His power to resist evil and to fight the good fight of the faith.
‘My persecuted brothers and sisters at the battlefront in most countries remind me that all who delight in pursuing righteousness and are determined to live godly lives in Christ Jesus will be persecuted but also that they are blessed and theirs is God’s kingdom.’
Supporting our Out of these Ashes campaign, she added: ‘Nigeria’s spiritual presence is so important for the whole of Africa and that is why we need to intercede for the church of Nigeria.’
Claudia’s paintings of this size have sold for between £1,500 and £1,800. Rooted in Love is unframed and will need to be collected by the winning bidder by arrangement with the artist.
