  The Deposition
     
 

This work is made using cast bronze, stone and wood. It is an interpretation of the biblical narrative commonly referred o as the entombment of Christ or the Deposition (John 19:38-39 ). It is part of a body of work that deals with Hermeneutics and the artful interpretation of biblical stories.  My use of the human skeletal figure is in part a tactic that I utilize so that I am able to directly work with the poses and postures of the figures within the story. This strategy enables me to concentrate the viewer’s attention on the individual figures and the way they interact & relate to one another.
