CPCC Alumnus and artist Tommie Robinson uses church members as models
Although he is working on some impressive paintings for the sanctuary at Charlotte’s Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, his motivation is more sociological than religious.
This untitled set of six paintings is traditional in subject matter – the Crucifixion, Judas betraying Jesus, Jesus’ baptism, and related imagery – but there is an important twist.
All the models are members of the church.
Robinson, 66, made this daring choice because, he says, he wants people, particularly children, to see someone other than the typical Jesus.
