Name of the Father,   drawing by arminmersmann Name of the Father,   drawing by arminmersmann
Completed
In the Name of the Father Sold 2007
Pencil on matboard 21” x 40”

Under the auspices of the Christian church there have been both horrible atrocities and amazing selfless acts of giving, all in “The Name of the Father”. The rouge priest stands for this duality; representing both the victim and culprit. Is he freeing the Christ from his cross or tearing him from his symbol of martyrdom? Helper, healer, consoler, rapist, madman, thief…

Thank you all for following this wip and for all the great comments and questions asked, I will try to get back to you as best as I can.

Thank you for looking

This is by far my favorite piece by you. The emotion he exhibits really moves me. I feel like when I spend so much time on a piece, painstakingly attempting to render it correctly, I loose a lot of the emotion in the drawing and some of the fun. Do you ever have that problem?

No every part has a purpose and if not part of the concept a part for personal growth,but the emotion stays strong thoughout

thanks
