I am amazed by the beauty of this – as abstract as it is – it is still so clearly Christ on the Cross.

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.

  1. Melainie you know so much about Catholic art! I love it. Thank you for pointing some of it out for us. Other than the Dali and the Záborský, which you told us about a few weeks ago, I have not seen any of them before. They are all brilliant. I have to say I really love the Demchuk.
