Divine Redeemer by Simon Dewey
About this Image:
For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. - Job 19: 25
I believe that oneâ€™s image of Christ is a very personal thing, and I take a great deal of personal responsibility in painting the Savior â€” my Savior. I wanted to convey in this painting both His strength and His sensitivity. To go through everything that He did for us and yet He was sensitive and caring enough to recognize and heal so much pain and hurt. I wanted to capture the gentleness in his eyes, the strength in his chin, a determination and willingness to be strong â€“ for us. The red in his robe is symbolic of His sacrifice and regal divinity. I wanted to paint this picture without a background â€“ with nothing to distract from His features and His countenance.
About the Artist:
Simon has quietly sought to celebrate the life and mission of Jesus Christ. His artistic journey began in London, England as a freelance illustrator. In 1997 he entered the world of fine art with the release of "He Lives". Since then, Simon has become known for his exquisitely detailed and delicate portraits capturing moments from the tender to the magnificent. Many marvel at the masterful way he portrays the love and compassion in the face of the Savior and the devotion in the eyes of the believers. Simon lives in Alberta, Canada where he continues to explore new perspectives to inspire and bear witness of eternal principles.
