In the Russian Orthodox church, the fortieth day after death is celebrated as the moment when the soul leaves the body.
I have tried to render what this moment might look like in a series of large bi-coloured diptychs.
Five diptychs each 175 x 330 cm
two pictures each 175 x 165 cm, 1999/2000/2001
Egg tempera/Mixed media on jute or canvas
