CHRIST IN A DUNGEON
In my second series, I explore this obscure 18th & 19th Century Russian art tradition known as 'Christ in a Dungeon.' This tradition tells the story of the moments between Jesus' public torture by Pilot, and his journey toward Golgotha where he would be crucified. In this, often overlooked moment of Good Friday, we see Jesus awaiting his crucifixion, folded up inside a dank, dark dungeon.
In it Original tradition, these would have mainly been sculpture. I have taken the form and explored many different variations on the theme.
