Afterlife




Gouache Painting

This painting shows Christ on the cross inside a womb. (taken from Dali´s "St. John's vision of Christ on the Cross")

It conveys the idea of an end and a beginning of life - Afterlife.

The shape of Christ´s body mirrors the shape of the uterus. Combining the ideas of life and death or re-birth.

There is also a connection with the blood and the phenomenon that is life.

The curtains open to reveal a new dawn and rising sun on the horizon and the beginning of another cycle.
