The Cross

by Bruce Stanfield

Skins are thin, easy-to-remove, vinyl decals for customizing your laptop . Skins are made from a patented material that eliminates air bubbles and wrinkles for easy application.


Medium: Mixed media – Oil and Acrylic on Hand wrapped linen on Masonite
A little about the painting: Stanfield invites the viewer to interpret this painting any way they feel. Everyone that viewed this in the studio had different ideas about “the cross” what it meant to them and so forth, “ so I leave this one to the viewer” to quote the artist “It has generated some interesting and conflicted conversations”, he went on to tell me. This piece hung in Stanfield’s personal studio reception room for a number of years and went into storage when he went off to “see the world” in the late ninety’s. Stanfield went on to admit that this particular piece was hard to part with as it is “a very provocative piece, in fact he told me “this is the piece that always generated the most comments ever in the studio, and I have turned down a number of serious offers for it. It is still hard to let it go”.

Created February 14, 1991
Keywords - cross, faith, holy, religion, the beast,

Thanks Andre, I had entered it in a Saatchi.com competition, hence I wrote about it a bit for that... tough competition! Saatchi site offers prints only at higher prices, have you tried it?
