This painting is by Krystyna Sikora. She created self portrait representing Jesus. Before I read the title, I could tell the emotion she was trying to paint was negative by the dark greens and heavy paint strokes. But there was also some white strokes. Then I found out she was trying to represent pain and suffering in this piece. I can see it in the chaotic stokes flowing in all directions. I like how she painted the cross and added hands holding weapons even though it's very depressing. The images aren't too obvious, so it took me a little while to find them.
