“Rising into the Whirlwind” is a digital illustration by Candy Kuehn, created for Craig Harris’ Elijah in the Wadi, a multimedia performance that explores the life, times, and character of the Prophet Elijah, an iconic figure who appears in the stories of all three Abrahamic religions – “the People of the Book.”

The Prophet Elijah is a witness and an activist.  He speaks truth to power, has a deep connection to his people, and is a fierce advocate for those who are disenfranchised. He also spends long periods of time in isolation, escaping and hiding from repeated threats against his life, and he struggles with periods of intense doubt and desperation.

As the story depicts, late in life the Prophet Elijah is lifted up into a whirlwind on a chariot of fire, only to return throughout all time during Shabbat, Passover, the Transfiguration, and at other key moments.

About Candy Kuehn Digital Illustrations

Candy Kuehn provides the following insights into her printing process to assist in producing the best results for printing and/or framing these prints: “I use Digital Fine Papers when printing my work. My favorites are Innova, Hahnemulle, Cansons  Infinity and Epson Fine Art Papers. My large works use roll papers – Epson Premium Photo Luster or Epson Legacy Baryta. My print files fit sizes A3 (13” x 17”) and A4 (17” x 22”), though some files are created for larger format printing. I download ICC profiles and follow prompts to install the profiles from the paper’s manufacturer’s guidelines. I use Adobe Photoshop as my go to editing program. I also test on one piece of paper; print and cancel; then try another setting turning the paper upside down, print and cancel until I am satisfied with the print results. (If you have a photo editing program, strips can be done that way as well.) For professional online printing, two options are Shutterfly.com and snapfish.com. I also use local professional art printers in Minneapolis, such as Artist Resource Group (artist-grp.com). Owner Terry Schopper’s knowledge is exceptional and brilliant.”

Please allow 4-6 weeks for printing and shipping of prints. Prints are often printed on demand, and we need to coordinate schedules with our high quality artwork printers. Please contact us about any special needs and we will try to accommodate.
