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.

Fish & Pita, Mark Hewitt, April 2012. Pastel 290W x 210H.
The post resurrection story of Luke 24:41,42. Where Jesus appears to the disciples, shows his hands & feet then eats broiled (chargrilled) fish. This brings an intimacy & the cultural obligations of hospitality to the narrative. The illustration has Tilapia, the fresh water fish of the sea of Galillee & pita bread with wine.
