While living in Italy as a small child, DeGrazia was exposed to the art of the Catholic Church. Although he never formally participated in church life, this particular series of paintings reflect a deep reverence for all things religious. Instead of the traditional 14 Stations of the Cross, DeGrazia’s collection culminates with the resurrection.
