Crown of Script

This Limited Edition is FINISHED! Every piece in this series has been collected. Thank you to all who have collected this piece over the years. 

The reformation of traditional verbiage is a prevailing theme in Weidmann’s work. He strives to take calligraphy to a new level within fine art, as shown in this piece which dictates Isaiah 53:4-5 in one continuous trajectory. The line intersects upon itself ten times, ending at its beginning to create a crown of thorns from the written word. A drop of blood indicates the struggle described in the verses: “Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our inequities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
