Cross Project

I have started a new project inspired by Salvador Dali's painting Christ of St. John of the Cross. I aim to make a text painting using text from revival stories, prayers, bible passages  to create an image using the cross. I am interested in the point of view Dali used of the cross -  which makes it look as if it is floating above the earth. I have started experimenting using photography as a starting point. Water could be used to distort the cross eventually or distort our view of it in some way. I am also interested in how water can be used symbolically to give meaning. For this reason I have started to work locally at the lakes using a cross as a motif to experiment with.

Here are the results so far....
