|Station III- Jesus Falls|
In 2010 St. James Cathedral (Seattle) was given a new set of Stations of the Cross, which hang in the Cathedral each year during the season of Lent. The stations are the work of JOAN BRAND-LANDKRAMER who began work on these stations many years ago, completing them in the fall of 2009. She used “found objects” from the beach near her home in Ocean Shores (WA) which includes wood, rope and wire, to create a contemporary interpretation of the centuries-old devotion of the Stations of the Cross.
Her stations were inspired by the work of Georges Rouault, the 20th-century French artist, and in particular his series of engravings entitled "Miserere". In Joan’s words, “I stood on the shoulders of Rouault, the master.”

While the Stations of Joan Brand-Landkramer may not be to everyone's liking, they certainly convey the suffering Christ in a way that we can relate to in our own human suffering.
