And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness.
I was cautious not to depict Christ more than was needed in this project. It’s a heavily loaded image- in fact no man made image can fully capture his magnificence or the depth of his humility in the garden of Gethsemane. When I see Christ portrayed in movies, I usually think ‘That’s not what my Christ looks like’ and am distracted by the casting. Here I placed Christ in the shadows so the viewer could focus on the power and glory emanating from his heart, not on his facial appearance.
This is an original handmade etching. It was created at the Lower East Side Printshop. The plate was created by etching the lines into a styrene plate. The plate was then inked by hand and painted in the reverse with a q-tip. Because of the unique painting on each plate, this is called a 'monoprint'. It was then run through a printing press to create a this one of a kind image.
