Artist's description:

For me, objects can be signifiers for people. And for me, a glass of red wine would be my last supper. And The Last Supper featured wine. I give you a glass for each disciple, out of context, save for a nod to the dark night. Each superficially the same, nothing marking out the one, for who are we to know or judge?

This was made for an exhibition called The Last Supper in which I responded to the betrayal of Jesus. ‘One of you is going to betray me’, ‘which of them’, ‘which one’, ‘who is it’, ‘the one’, and ‘it was night’. These were the words that I kept coming back to. So, one out of the twelve; but no-one could tell which. Only Christ knew.

Wax combined with pigment (encaustic) is an ancient medium. (see the Fayum portraits made between 200 and 100 BC at The British Medium). It is long-lasting and durable. Just remember to avoid heat and direct sunlight and extreme cold. Dust by wiping with a lint free cloth.

Materials used:

beeswax, paraffin wax, pigment
