“The Last Laugh Before the Last Supper, and the Cosmic Creation of the Planet Saturn”

 

The Last Laugh Before the Last Supper and the Cosmic Creation of the Planet Saturn

90″x 44″           December 2015

 

This is a group photo of my last class, a digital hybrids class. The plan was to roughly recreate Leonardo’s “Last Supper” with some students assigned to mimic particular roles and gestures from the original painting;  students painted and dressed themselves in character accordingly. As the photo sessions devolved into a kind of controlled chaos the scene became more absurd and laughable than anything I’d planned and a perfect way to bid my formal teaching career adieu.

With deep appreciation and thanks to: Taylor, Kyle, Maggie, Andriana, Alex, John, Griffin, Elise, Katie, Megan, Juliette, Devon, Nikki, Kasie, Marti, Megan P., Melanie, Abby, Kelley, Cara and Steve.

This piece consumed the better part of my waking hours during 2015, a labor of love, but a healthy respite from the emotional edges of the “The Temple of Wonders.”
