Ron Richmond (b. 1963), Triplus, Number 3, 2005, oil on canvas, 51 x 75 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art, purchased with funds provided by Lewis and Gail Burnham, 2007. Used with permission.
This painting invites introspection on ideas of redemption and sanctification made possible through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Three bowls, one visibly empty, allude to the essential elements of both physical and spiritual birth, as well as vital sacred ordinances.
