Hand drawn, pen and ink, drawing of crosses in a pattern. I like to think it looks like embossed iron or something like that! On plain white cartridge paper.
I find the use of crosses in these repeating patterns interesting. For me, they have a somewhat confused, emotive meaning. I grew up in a very Christian home, where belief was taken as absolute, the only option. The Christian crucifix was therefore an important symbol for me.
As I grew up and realised I had no emotional nor intellectual connection to the religion, the Cross has lost it’s religious significance. Instead, it should be " just a cross", although I still find myself drawn to it on a more aesthetic level. It could be said that it’s a symbol both of what I once was and what I am now.
