Street Circus Christ

An explosion of confetti colour hiding a celebratory Christ, the bringer of eternal life through his death. His incarnation a carnival parade of divinity masked in humanity. A Picture of Christ's miracle life and his imminent marriage to his bride.

Art form: Confetti and crate paper on canvas.

Biblical basis:
Revelation 19:7
"Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready."

John 1:14
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."

 


Flesh Became Word

Decorated jelly babies on an acrylic map present an interpretation of incarnational mission and ministry and migration to London. Many nations and cultures converge in this diverse mega city. All made of the same flesh, but ascetically different, amidst this, everyday believers live out their faith presenting a living testament of Christ.

Art form: Mixed colours of jelly babies, some warpped in scripture, stonding on a map of London painted with acrylic.

Biblical basis:
John 1:14
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."

 


Lump of Meat

 

The full carcass of a dead lamb nailed to a cross. This piece is an affronting interpretation of Christ as the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (Jn 1:29). This visceral, disturbing presentation of the death of Christ reveals the typology of old testament sacrifice and its fulfilment in Christ's work accomplished on the cross.

Art form: Wooden cross embedded in concrete with lamb carcass.

Biblical basis:
John 1:29
"The next day [John the Baptist] saw Jesus coming toward him, and said 'Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.'"

John 1:14
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."

 


Stained Church

 

 

 

 

 

The World and the Word collide in an acrylic painting of a stained-glass window. Offering a vivid expression of a possible ecclesiological, incarnational presence among those broken by addiction. The piece offers an invitation to the church in London to suspend its judgement, draw near to broken people, and imitate Jesus.

Art form: Acrylic painting on canvas with assorted addiction related parapernailia.

Biblical basis:
1 Corinthians 9:19-23
"...To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings."

Matthew 9:10-13
While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

 

 


Cardboard Kingdom

 

Christ identified with humanity and their sin through his incarnation and his 'tabernacling' among us. In a similar manner, can this be imitated by Christ's followers in London? Christ's incarnation meant him emptying his divine rights and experiencing the restriction of humanity and relative poverty. Condescending to human skin he showed us the way. How will we respond?

Art form: Live installation piece using cardboard, crates and assorted parapernalia.

Biblical basis:
John 1:14
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."

Philippians 2:4-8
"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross."
