The Temptation

April Cowan

Sydney, Australia

Artist's Description

Piece Two in my HSC body of Work. The series in total is called “Ascendancy” which means domination or influincing figure, but also has connotations to the ascention of Mary in Christianity. Basically what i tried to do was to show how humanity’s expression of faith has changed, evolved, or even stayed the same. “The Temptation” refers to the temptation of Christ by the devil (40 nights in the desert, etc)

Compressed Charcoal on Paper
size: approx. 80 × 40 cms
