|Station of the Cross, St Alban's Holborn|
I don't know how the painter managed this.
It's a cleaned-up image of a crucified man. Nobody who'd been flogged and then nailed up would be this clean, that's for sure.
And the angle of the head - the exhaustion on the face - the sheer failedness of the composition - it's a powerful image.
If I were half as much a failure as this guy, the image is saying, I'd be pretty down as well.
