FIVE PLUS FIVE

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
