I had the great honour of being selected to spend six months in the Musée du Louvre to develop a new body of work around fragments of religious paintings of the XVth century. Here is a work in progress in front of Josse Lieferinxe's crucifixion.
I tried to find indications of spiritualism (as opposed to religion) through the analysis and retranscription of this highly codified iconography. This particular painting explored the flow of the Christ's Perichoresis, the undulating drapé which encircles the body.
I found hope and uplift in the volutes that this cloth created.
