Art for God? Artist Stephen Sawyer sees Jesus in boxing rings and blue jeans. Evidently, Jesus also sells coffee filters in Versailles, Kentucky, USA. Field reps are needed. warning: NSFH

Jesus is a white, muscular, Nordicly photrogenic boxer? How many socially constructed myths about what it means to be white can he cram into one painting? Is he hoping Jesus will box Joe Louis in heaven and win one for Max Schleming? Or did he just listen to too much Carman?

That reminds me: the Unitarians bought Jesus.com out from under the Good Lord Himself, who still needs a date.

Okay, I don't have much experience with the xian worldview other than being an American, but I kinda like these. I know Jesus wasn't porcelain-skinned, but at least he looks happy.

Is it just me or does the Joy to the World Jesus look like Kenny Rogers?

Mr. Sawyer's Jesus makes me Woody. Perhaps he's working through some issues, so be nice.

Incidentally, Jesus is with you always, whether you are driving a truck, juggling, welding, or just making a joyful noise.

ubi: Not Safe for Hell... And before charged...I plead guilty.

Wolfdaddy: You won't see that Jesus anywhere else. Though asked to sit by other artists he's committed to Sawyer. He's not my taste, but you might like this guy as Jesus.

mikrophon: Wow, that trucker has the same pained look I get when grabbed while driving. Where is the one where Jesus is with me when I....nah, I can't write that. You just imagine it.
