Subtitled The Passion Through the Eyes of Peter, this exhibition premieres over fifty new abstracts that study the final drama in the life of Jesus from the imaginary perspective of his closest disciple.  Each work, drawn from Biblical as well as historical references, humanizes an individual event from The Passion by interpreting it through the emotional and psychological lens of a man whose courage and revolutionary conviction would eventually fail him three times when put to the ultimate test.
