EASTER 1985 - LITHOGRAPH
During the 1970's, I was struck by the message of Christianity and the culmination of religious celebrations that happen each Easter. I wanted to remind people that Easter was more than bunny rabbits and Easter egg hunts, so I painted a number of renditions of the face of Christ.
The Easter of 1985 found me again wanting to create a work that would leave a lasting impression and provide the viewer with cause for meditation. I reworked an older painting, showing the face of Christ in red with a crown of thorns and a face of a man in black. The basic thought behind this creation was that if we identify with Christ in his Roy crucifixion and death, we also acknowledge his resurrection and everlasting life.
