Liturgical arts requires the depiction of the human figure. When confronted with the figure of Christ in particular, I necessarily feel a deep inadequacy. Looking toward and imitating different traditions of representation fosters a more mature treatment of the subject and helps to temper this feeling. After... is a continuing study of the figure as depicted in a wide range of styles by masters and artists whose depictions of the human condition I find compelling. Through these studies and interpretations, I hope to lay the seeds for my own authentic depiction of the human figure and condition.
