A Passion Tree, 1997, 2007, 2013, Mark A Hewitt. Wood, wire, paper, pencil, pastel.
The original intention was to create a piece that explored the crucifixion in an Australian context.
A devotional piece. That required close inspection being three dimension.
The cross and the tree are one. Physically the cross is a weathered tree root that was from a Eucalyptus tree that had been uprooted in a storm many years before so the root had been well weathered. Jesus body outlined with rusty fencing wire that makes the other part of the cross.
Old weathered barbed wire making the crown of thorns.

Koinonia, Still Life No.2 in series of 4 on Acts 2:42 Mark A Hewitt 1997
The Church, the gathered faithful, are to be the one Vine with the fruit of love.
John 15:9-17 has us living in love.
How would a community of love, live out it’s love?
David Augsburger, Professor of pastoral care & counselling at Fuller Theological Seminary, In his book, Dissident Discipleship (Brazos Press, 2006) Mentions that ‘the most virtuous form of love is ‘koinonia, the mutual, reciprocal, committed, and celebrated love of intimate relationship, authentic community, and responsive fellowship.’ …… ‘To live in koinonia is to rely on a web of relationships of loving, caring community. When this community is centred in Jesus Christ, it takes on the unique character of the One who was willing to suffer the ultimate human in justice, abuse, and social scorn without yielding to fear or betraying the way of redemptive love.’
