The idea behind MANY CROSSES came to me during California’s 2012 Election. While I read over Proposition 34, I began to think of crucifixion as being a common form of the death penalty in Jesus’ time. It was used as a public display of power and authority, and oppressed the people.
I imagined crosses, spanning over hills into the far horizon, each one representing a life taken. Some of the crucified have loved ones to comfort them, others are alone. Guards, in suits of armor, carry spears as they watch over the condemned.
I made and used this image in support of ending the death penalty.
