Stripped of his Garments
During the walk through the Stations of the Cross in the Norris Square park, I will cut apart the blocks in the sleeves to distribute to those present. I believe it symbolizes sacrifice and generosity. To "give the shirt off one's back" is a phrase that demonstrates our ultimate sacrifice for others, but it pales in comparison to Christ's sacrifice.
It's very meaningful for me to participate in the centuries-long tradition of church-sponsored artistic expression. I'm sometimes uncomfortable with the monetary/business side of being an artist. I make things because I must- it is a natural outpouring of my creative spirit, so to have a spiritual purpose for the creativity is greatly fulfilling.
