Pierced and Abandoned.study 2 - detail
This work and the studies were created within a film project that portrays the last day of Jesus through art. We tend to focus on the divine nature of Jesus as the Christ, but find it hard to relate to Jesus as a real person, but he was very real, and at once carried both the divine and humanity on his shoulders. Because the symbol of the Cross almost takes on mythical proportions, it is sometimes hard to imagine what it must have really been like for the Son of God to be put through all that happened, not just in the end, but throughout his life. These works and the film from it try to convey the death, and the resurrection in a new, moving way.
