BAPTISM OF CHRIST:

BAPTISM OF CHRIST “Rip Caswell’s  Baptism of Christ  is the artistic center of Epiphany Church in Normal, IL.  I cannot say enough in praise and appreciation of Rip’s ability as an ecclesiastical artist . I respect him for his remarkable work ethic and gentlemanly demeanor. I look forward to working with him again.” – Monsignor Eric Powell, The Epiphany Catholic Church

Slide3:

Rip was first approached by the Patron of this project to create a site-specific sculpture depicting Christ being baptized by John. The Patron’s wish was to have an artwork that could also be used as a baptismal font. The work also had to be realistic and include elements directly related to scripture and to the biblical descriptions of  Christ’s baptism . SITE-SPECIFIC DESIGN

Slide4:

SYMBOLIC DETAILS IN CLAY Rip approached the project with deep research into the history behind Jesus’ baptism. As in all of his figurative work , Rip studied and used a live model for each of the two figures. He sculpted the anatomy of each before adding the layers of clothing.

Slide6:

The life-size sculpture depicts Christ bowing to accept a blessing from John the Baptist. Standing over Jesus, one hand pouring the baptizing water while the other is raised to the heavens, John the Baptist implores God to hear his blessing.
