This painting was painted during lent and was exhibited at the Australian Catholic University, Brisbane, 2009. “Messiah” was acquired by the university for their private art collection.

The iconic image, calligraphic inscriptions of the names of Christ, colour, texture and symbolism combine to convey a powerful expression of Christ's humanity and suffering as well as His divinity and power over death. Saturated colour together with the nails against the wooden background, symbolise Christ's passion. The textured surface depicts the physical scars inflicted on Christ. A Divine inner light illuminates Christ's form as the resurrected Messiah.

Original painting: oil on canvas; dimensions: 1.1m x 1.2m.

Creator of the universe...we all suffer from varying degrees of blindness. We are blind to love, to grace, to justice, to caring, to listening and to each other. Help us not to condemn one another in our blindness, but rather to work together to help one another see more clearly by Your light. Amen.


For with You is the fountain of life;

In Your light we see light.


Psalm 36:9 (NKJV)
