A collection of over one hundred variations of the cross painted by a midwestern wife of a pastor. Though the cross is now primarily associated with Christianity, it is an ancient symbol used by past cultures throughout time and the world over. 84 shown here - there are about 125 total. Displayed together they make a powerful installation.
Iconographically there are four basic variations:
1) Crux quadrata (a cross of four equal arms);
2) Crux immissa (with a long stem ratio);
3) Crux commissa (based on the Greek letter tau or “T”); and
4) Crux decussata (based on the Roman decussis or 10, “X”).
The collection is assembled in a binder with each page in an archival sleeve.
