Graphite, Acrylic Latex Paint, Polyester Gloves, Collage on 4 Canvas

Approx. 1996

I had the idea for a series of works in which I symbolically donate used clothing items to Jesus. Relating to the way we give hand-me-downs to clothing shelters, or the homeless. Cast-offs for cast-offs in a sense. All the drawings are copies of Matthias Grunewald's "Isenheim Altarpiece", a work which I have not yet had the good fortune to see in person, but must one day see for myself.
