Telegraph article. Jesus’s face.

A kind friend at Truro Cathedral sent me this article to read because it reminded her of my painting of Veronica .

It is a dilema as a figurative painter , what to put in and what to leave out, especially because it seems, as the article suggests,  almost human nature to want to see as much as we can of God, through Jesus face as a man, even as means of contemplation.  It is I suppose, something we learn as babies , the face is the point of focus where we read each others feelings and thoughts . Bach’s chorals in avoiding visual imagery in favour of music , words and imagination perhaps offer a more uncluttered route to meditation, it seems close in many ways to abstract painting , a bit like using colour, shape and our imagination.
