Lord Jesus of Many Faces and Paintings on Consciousness,
Recycling Art

by Wis - Wieslaw Sadurski


Cleaning my palette every couple of weeks,
and what I scratched off with my palette knife was then dried and preserved in glasses.

For ten years I was collecting dried remains of oil paints. Colorful pieces. Lots of them!

Technically it looked so: canvas on the floor.
I was partly covering it with thick white primer paint and placing these bits of colorful dried oils onto it.

With Lord Jesus Christ comes one short story.
 

At the age of twelve I revolted, refused to go to church. Turning thirteen, I had to live in a monastery, wow! Soon expelled.
Okay, later studied philosophy and went a long way to learn the movements of the universe. At thirty discovered Zen-teaching and fell in love with it. Started to paint, doing Za-zen and Yoga (most of the time anyhow).
Now, reading the New Testament, Upanishads, studying Tibetan mysticism and modern physics. Becoming religious, so to speak.

Then I had a dream one night about lying on the wet earth, weeping in despair, on a cold and rainy morning. There was a little country road and some loud motorbikes passing by along with several Roman warriors on horseback. Seeing many time periods meeting simultaneously, I could only scream, cry, and wriggle with pain like a worm on muddy soil
- because there, far from here, they were crucifying my beloved brother, master and all my love
- and I could do nothing but scream with terror.

So the last image in the series is one of Jesus.
I was scratching and cleaning my palette thoroughly to get the last available "material".
When the painting dried and went up on the wall, I saw in the shape of the head different faces, and human silhouettes.
Those small particles of oil dance on the white background and give freedom for fantasy to begin.
Therefore the title:

Lord Jesus of Many Faces
1985, oil painting on canvas 80 x 80 cm

I will never forget how you crucified Jesus

through all your speeches prayers songs
I hear the coarse breathing
I see
the bleeding sweating
still trembling
body

it's not my affair to judge or forgive
because I do not believe in your good or evil

one thing I'll never forget
is that I see
all around me
your immortal lying
undying falsity

no I can never forget
how you crucify Jesus
