After the last judgement

Oil on linen, 149 x 120cm



Artist Statement

“The icon of the last judgement is an ancient image seen throughout Christian art, both East and West. It symbolically represents the end of the cosmos and its rebirth as a new creation. The icon is traditionally placed on the west wall of a church, for the faithful to consider as they go out into the world. It is an image of hope in the midst of contemporary turmoil. I wanted to make a version of this icon as a way to remember Christ’s promise that in the Resurrection he will make all things new.”
