Art must be deluded by art. 1583: Melbanke, Philotinus.It is a chiefe point of art to dissemble art. BretonI have heard scholars say, that it is art to conceal art. 1753: Fuller.
I didn’t like this at first, but then I saw it as a version of the Crucifixion as intense as Grünewald’s Isenheim Altarpiece, though obviously without any of the technical skill involved in the creation of that masterpiece. I think it’s a good concept. In one sense I hate to look at it, as I hate to look at the Isenheim; but that’s because of the depiction of intense suffering.
Mmmm.. this has become a bit of a icon, initially the pinned the doll lay in a crucifix coffin with two crucifix paintings either side with a hammer and its shaft also nailed. It became exhibited for a short while in Bristol, strange people used to come and look at it and some started to bow and pray. Totally wierd…

I don’t think it is weird…..that people would pray, I mean. It’s not my usual thing at all…….I’m notoriously conservative in matters of religious iconography, and I certainly wouldn’t like to see it in a Church. Yet I can understand how, to someone who believes in the deity of Christ and the redemptive value of his sufferings, it might become an object of devotion. Even the frame is suffering.
It became strange to see in a public space such as a gallery. I dont think they were serious just play acting or trying to humour the peice.Luckily no police….
… i am enjoying the nailheads defining a skin [barrier] which is almost soft and the shadow giving a taste of movementas if the figure in the frame is drifting through space
if i consider the title i think ’ very controlled and analytical voodoo’
That is exactly what I thought, the title though became progressive and evolved through the working progress.Pleased u like it
