Title: The Jesus project : an artistic definition of the sacred feminine
Author: Ilieva, Miriana Deltcheva
Abstract: This thesis presents The Jesus: a project about the representation of the Crucifixion in Renaissance art. After determining the cultural codes for depicting women, it is established that Renaissance representations of the Crucifixion portray Christ in an extraordinarily feminine and sensual light. The development of the project is documented in terms of the creative process and the conceptual and darkroom experiments involved in the creation of the artwork. Finally, contemporary artworks similar to The Jesus are discussed in the context of religious imagery.
