Each Easter I create a Good Friday Cross. This year, I began my resurgence into art with this work, inspired by the cubist efforts of Colin McCahon. After reworking it later, I incorporated the black square, my symbol for depression that often comes and ruins the view or blocks me from seeing the full picture and enjoying life.
This is also my first work that I have built a frame for and has become part of the artwork. It is made out of rimu.

This work was hugely inspired by the great New Zealand artist, Colin McCahon. It links to the three crosses on the hill; Christ flanked by the two criminals. The term “Gate” is an opening, an access point to further fields, similar to how Christ is a gate to heaven.
