The Stations of the Cross


Michael Freeman painted his stations of the cross between 1976 and 1978. They were painted to focus contemplation on the subjects referred to, not to illustrate them. The changing colour and, in one case, the absence of the motif in the top part of the picture is significant.

He does not like the way that religious figures are normally portrayed and does not want to dictate to others how he sees them, so he chooses to convey his feelings through abstract imagery that people can interpret in their own way, through their response to colour, shape and texture.

The Entombment


Michael Freeman, visionary painter, draughtsman, printmaker and adult educationalist, was born in 1936 in Swansea. Having always lived near the sea, he finds that the rhythm of the tides deeply influences his work and outlook.
