back ... next ...Christmyth © 1984 Tom Ferguson   oil on canvas
collection, Joe & Hea Jung Ruesing, Hilo, Hawaii ... one of those periodic larger works 76 x 56"
every painter has to do a crucifixion right?  There's some glare & the sky area is abit washed out. This came
out of that period of sorting out my feelings about Christianity, at first dumbly embracing it, then dumbly rejecting it
for a militant atheism then reallizing the legitimacy of allegory.... return of the wayward son? Not quite, i'm
not comfortable with conventional religious language... God? no, but Being? a resolute yes.
