24' x 33' The ambiguous face of Jesus implies his majestic status, whilst questioning the significance of today. The duotone portrait (an aesthetic which is typically used in advertising) references Kanye West's 'Closed on Sunday'. Similarly, the techniques used are intended to draw conceptual parallels with his identity; the curvaceous, contrasted lines which references the crown of thorns and the vigorous marks and gestures that obscures the face, thus juxtaposing biblical interpretation.
24' x 33' Graphite Drawing and Digital Media on Fine Art Paper. The face of Jesus intends to challenge conventional portraiture through technological and contemporary artistry. I strive to create a body of work that highlights Jesus’ notion of acceptance and peace. On one hand we are told, by the orthodox Christian, to embrace mercy by accepting God’s sovereignty, yet on the other, we have become socially conditioned to seek acceptance through personal performance and outward works.
