Artist's Description

“There is a green hill far away, outside a city wall”

Based on one of my sketches that I created during the Good Friday service this year, reflecting on Easters themes of death, resurrection, hope, eternity, and life. This piece focuses on the cross, and in particular the imagery of “Golgotha”, the place of the skull, the nails driven into the flesh of those crucified there, place in the eye, the crown, and the mouth.

This mix of, loss and hope, grief and joy, that marks so much of Easter celebrations had an added potency for myself this year as my father had just passed away (or as they say in my particular faith tradition, he was “Promoted to Glory”) just two weeks before Easter Sunday.
