Project Description

Agony in the Garden, 1995
Ink Painting, 28.5″ x 21″
Collection of the Artist

The brown and light brown forms are this earth from which, with the coming of the cross, Jesus will depart.His humanity leaves its natural physical place and it is a moment when Jesus does not see himself as other than human and at this moment weak and in sorrow and pain, though beneath he is always divine and beautiful. The column dividing the painting which normally would be a disastrous inclusion to any painting, here becomes a triumph of the artist’s technique.
