Life of Sin

Life of Sin. Graphite on canvas, climbing rope, carabiners. 18 ft by 4 ft by 3 ft. Installed dimensions approximately 8 ft by 5 ft by 3 ft. September 2021.

In this piece, ten feet of folded canvas form overlapping, chaotic waves beneath the image of a drowning disciple in a stormy sea reaching upwards to Christ. Piece belongs to a larger body of work focused on large-scale, experimental interpretations of ecclesiastical stained glass panes, wherein I attempt to appropriate sacred religious imagery and bring it down from lofty heights to be on the same plane as the viewer.
