Artist Statement
Upon coming into the light as a Freemason you are taught moral lessons by various means; which include dramas, ritual and symbols. In each of the three degrees there are new examples of all. These symbols are fairly universal and date back hundreds, if not thousands of years.
 
One tools that Freemasons use is called a tracing board. Tracing boards started at the beginning of speculative Freemasonry when Lodges were held on the second floor of a pub or bar. The Worshipful Master would draw out the symbols in chalk on the floor and the Entered Apprentice would wash it away at the end of the evening.
 
Over the centuries, Lodges moved out of pubs and into actual Lodge rooms, but the tracing boards continued to be used. However, instead of being written in chalk on the floor the tracing boards evolved into paintings.
 
As a Master Mason, I have taken these symbols, images and lessons and have begun to develop my own contemporary tracing board. Though they may not look like the normal tracing board, the symbols and lessons would be understood by any Master Mason who were to come across them.
