A series of 11 etchings and aquatints interpreting the passion and resurrection of Christ. These were some of the first etchings I ever made while working at the Edinburgh Printmakers’ Workshop, reworkings of larger paintings. The images provide a modern twist on the classic christian iconography of the stations of the cross, capturing 11 incidents in the Easter story: five before and five after the pivotal moment of the entombment of Jesus. The titles are short questions or phrases taken from the original Greek text of the New Testament. I generally only printed 4 or 5 of each image before the plates were lost in one of my moves. One complete set is available for sale (mixed numbers 2 and 3 of 25), otherwise as marked.
15 x 23 cm. Edition 25, printed on Somerset Creme paper. £85 each including postage
