PETER HOWSON: “Judas”, 2002. Flowers East Gallery, Londres
Oil on Canvas.
The picture expresses a deep feeling of guilt. Howson himself intensely believes in the power of suffering as a path to redemption. The anatomic study of a tortured Judas suggests a psychological self portrait. The phantasmagorical look of the landscape seems to reflect the anguish in which the artist is immersed. Howson’s atmosphere is cruel, but heartening.
