Artist's Description

Based on: Mark 15: 22-41, Romans 5: 6-11

The story of the hand

As I draw, I ask questions to help me understand how to depict things. Did they have to hold him down? Was he so beaten & tortured that he was physically unable to resist? Did he submit? How could he bear it?
I worked from a photo of my hand. Drawing the nail going in was too much. I kept wanting to look away, so it’s casting a shadow that speaks of the horror about to unfold.
Adapting the picture of my hand, removing some age, adding some masculinity, I looked and realised: it wasn’t my hand, but it should have been.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was being punished for what we did. He was crushed because of our guilt. He took the punishment we deserved, and this brought us peace. We were healed because of his pain. (ERV)

From an original pastel drawing approx 30cm x 40cm
