These crosses from photographs were not made from jewels or polished metals. They are of everyday objects with diverse textures, forms and complexities. The artist’s intent is to reflect the glory of the crucifixion with manipulated images of industrial machines, worn surfaces, discarded materials, old jackets, and other familiar, tangible forms. A listless glance at the Cross does not offer a pretty image. It looks unsightly to the casual eye.
However, a closer look at the crucifixion of Jesus displays a glorious revelation — our God’s love and saving power fulfilling a plan of redeeming the world by sacrificing Himself in our place. We are innocent because He assumed our guilt. This odious Cross has become the beautified celebration of the Christian church.
The crosses are printed with archival inks on archival paper. They are fourteen inches square with a recommended white mat and frame of nineteen inches square. Contact artist for more information.
