Painted Plaster casts (13)                              The Last Supper (2016)

Open display on a white plinth (13 feet represent one work)

This work considers the subject of“The Last Supper” from a different angle. Christ in this work is represented by a foot which is completely painted ( spiritually complete) where as the 12 disciples feet display bare raw plaster of paris toes at end of a painted foot. Inspired by Michelangelo’s Slave series where figures are trapped trying to escape the stone they are carved from, I see the disciples feet representing a truth they are trapped within and trying to reach out to the world.
