No Greater Love by Simon Dewey
About this Image:
How great the wisdom and the love, That filled the courts on high, And sent the Savior from above, To suffer, bleed, and die! - How Great the Wisdom and the Love, Hymn #195
This was a difficult image to compose. How do you portray this immensely important event, with the emotion it deserves, without showing the grim elements of the crucifixion? I chose to show the impact it had on two key figures in Christ’s life: Mary and John the Beloved. The shadow of the cross is designed to lead the eye to these two important people mourning their loss, which surely must have been devastating. The lightning and thunder is symbolic of our Heavenly Father’s aguish at that moment.
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.
