Image + Description

Agony In The Garden

Each image in the The Agony in the Garden portfolio is set in the Garden of Gethsemane and depicts the same moment, when Judas betrayed Christ with a kiss, from the varying viewpoints of the eleven other disciples. Ofili employs the heads, leaving some as outlines while others are filled in, to represent the eleven perspectives amidst the throng of soldiers that accompanied Judas to capture Christ and ultimately sentence him to crucifixion. Through this gesture, Ofili reinforces the power of perspective, acknowledging that any story, even one of history's most frequently told, is simply one attempt at describing the apparent truth of the situation.
