Painted as part of the Stations of the Cross at Titahi Bay Community Church annual exhibition at Easter, this work looked at the crucifixion of Christ.

“The weight of sin on his shoulders
SIN OF MAN
Overwhelmed, suffering, despair, anguish, pain, cry for help, depressed, rejected,
alone, fear, hurt, vulnerable, betrayed, crushed, forgotten, abandoned
Darkness, consume, scared, exhausted, anger, nowhere left to turn to
Intense emotional inside His soul
The burden of fate today
Ignored, isolated, solitude, sour, unsure, shadow of death
Hopelessness, Grim
Take this cup of suffering away from me
But not my will but your will be done. Humble
SELFLESS, grace, mercy, forgiveness, peace,
Solace, determined, LOVE, Saviour of the world
SON OF MAN”

Continuing with the use of stencils, text and spraypaints, I explored the idea of grace and mercy. The reds and blacks are strong colours paired with white crosses. The text is taken from Micah 6:8.

“Mercy

To do what is right
To love MERCY
And to walk humbly with your God”

This painting had a couple of iterations. It was going to have a pair called “Pillar of Smoke” referencing the guides that God provided leading Israel out of Egypt. However, time and efforts lead me into other areas of painting. This painting also got damaged and was reframed on a slightly shorted frame to allow for it’s sale.

“CRUCIFY HIM. But Jesus did not say anything. ‘I am not guilty of this mans death. You are the ones who are causing it. Clean Me. Are you the KING OF THE JEWS? Jesus answered ‘Those are your words.”
“That old rugged cross, bearing the sins of all. The curtain in the TEMPLE was town into 2 TWO pieces; from the top to the bottom (a curtain divided the Most Holy Place from the other parts of the Temple.)”
“DARKNESS covered the earth EARTH for 3 three HOURS. ELI Eli, Eli lama sabachthani. Surely He was the Son of God SON OF GOD.”
