Crucifixion (John 19:28-30)

I was inspired to do a crucifixion painting from the eyes of Christ's spirit, as he was about to die.

The painting is based on these verses: Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty". A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished". With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

The painting also depicts the visual crossover between each eye. Unaware to me at the time of painting, the style seems to point towards iconography.

I have only shown this painting to a few people. They didn't understand it, but I do. What do you think?

Oil paint on board 90.6 x 56 cm

Re: Crucifixion (John 19:28-30)

Very interesting and unique perspective.. I love the look of the soldier's face and the expression of his eyes. The crossover between the eyes is quite a magical touch to this painting. The thorn crown around the head is noticeable, too - enough to give away the meaning of it all. Is there a reason you drew everyone standing? I would think there was weeping/kneeling in some way. I think this is, overall, a very different and a soulfully inspired piece. Very happy to have seen this today.

More than interesting and imaginative. I like that we see the scene through the Rabbi's eyes. The figures have a similarity to those painted by Giotto but the perspective is throughly modern (like a helmet cam).

Re: Crucifixion (John 19:28-30)

I'm intrigued by the depiction of the inside of Yeshua's head. The color specks seem to indicate that there is a Universe inside of him. Interesting and effective iconography.

Re: Crucifixion (John 19:28-30)

Nice painting! I got that it was from Jesus' POV, but I didn't notice the parallax between the eyes. Clever!
