Jesus Condemned to Death
The Wahshing of the Feet- Ghislaine Howard
Ghislaine Howard is a British artist born in 1953 who was named as a Woman of The Year in 2008 for her contribution to art and society. A painter of powerful and expressive means, she is known for her ability to express our Christian faith in an imaginative and arresting way.

In her Washing of the Feet she has mixed sand with the paint to create a sculptural texture which serves to at once unify and heighten the intensity and intimacy of the scene.

The Breaking of the Bread- Koder
One of my favorite artists, whom we have dealt with in a past blog is Sieger Koder, a German priest who uses painting as Jesus used parables. He reveals the depth of the Christian message through metaphors. Köder dips his brush into the very essence of Scripture and with color describes the wholeness of human life.

 “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” Jn 6:35
