NYC ARTIST DOUG BLANCHARD: ¨Doug Blanchard's haunting contemporary paintings of the Passion of Christ are an emotional reminder of the courage it takes to resist the powers that be...

¨Artist Doug Blanchard's series of 24 paintings depicting Jesus as a contemporary gay man in a modern city add a realistic backdrop to the emotional drama of the story. His work reimagines the dramatic events of Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, and Jesus' arrest, trial, crucifixion, and resurrection.

A book to be released later this year, The Passion of Christ: A Gay Vision, includes Blanchard's paintings and text by Kittredge Cherry. The complete set of paintings will be exhibited as they are released daily to celebrate Holy Week on the blogJesusInLove.blogspot.com. You can also learn more about the author and the painter there, as well as find information on purchasing prints and other products.
Below and on the following pages are a selection of Blanchard's retelling of the Easter story.
