Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross Exhibition, St Edmund's Church, Lidgett Park Road, LS8. This is the Ninth Station: Jesus falls a third time.

Oakwood Parade, Good Friday

Stations of the Cross is an multi-media art exhibition which you can see for the next few weeks at St Edmund’s Church, Lidgett Park Road, Leeds LS8 1JN.

Curated by illustrator and artist Si Smith, fourteen Leeds-based artists were each given one of the 14 Stations of the Cross to interpret. I was commissioned to paint the Ninth Station – Jesus falls a third time.

Opening times, interviews with the artists and more can be found on the St Edmund’s Stations website.

  2. I am not Christian but always found the stations of the cross a powerful and evocative myth. I love the way this has been depicted in your exhibition.

    • Thank you Neil. It is a very interesting exhibition and all the artists involved have done a good job. I felt strongly while I was painting this that the basic human condition is summed up in the Ninth Station.

  3. Wow!

    What a wonderful painting. I like the setting you have used – contemporary – with the people just going about their business. And the way the piece is laid out with the action in the center and defined by the fences. So many interlocking shapes harmonizing and opposing.

    And then there is the flock of birds…!!!
