assignment belongs in the context of visual piety and gives you the
opportunity to apply and deepen your understanding of that notion, based on our
reading by David Morgan. The assignment consists of two parts.
Go to the following link and view the
painting âCalvaryâ by the religious
artist Stephen Sawyer. On your keyboard, keep the âCtrlâ key pressed and
then press the â+â key (repeatedly) to enlarge the image.
The above link worked fine, last time I
checked. Should it not work properly anymore while our course is underway, you
can google âStephen Sawyer Calvaryâ to find
other links to the same image.
Also, there is another
link (see right below) to a commercial website, featuring the âCalvaryâ
image, but here you cannot easily change the view.
However, here the image
is accompanied by some suggestive commentary. .news.com.au/world/artist-stephen-sawyer-gives-jesus-the-chuck-norris-makeover/story-e6frfkyi-1226127197890″>According
to the statement next to the image, Sawyerâs painting has to do with âbroken
connections with Godâ and âour private hell.â
this part of the assignment, write a description of the painting and spell out
how these two notions are visually engaged by the artist.
While you should zero in on particular details or items (and what they may
symbolize), this part of the assignment is mostly descriptive. Critical
interpretation is reserved for the next part.
Write a viewerâs
response that addresses the following questions:
was your gut reaction to the painting? What emotions, sentiments, or
associations did it trigger? (If you have encountered this picture before
taking this class, recall what it was like when you first saw it.)
do you think is the intended message of the painting, and is it conveyed
successfully? How does this message relate to the title âCalvaryâ?
(Focus on what the image âtellsâ you, and do NOT rely on, or parrot,
the editorial text beneath the image!)
if anything, is âpiousâ or âimpiousâ about this image?
