Christ the Healer - by Nilsson Silveus

This art gallery presents a collection of oil paintings depicting Jesus Christ of the Christian religion.  These oil paintings focus on important points in his life and his legacy.  This gallery excludes depictions of his execution and resurrection.  The gallery will focus on stories and depictions from his birth to later adult life.

This oil painting depicts Jesus Christ as an infant. Jesus was born in a barn, and was adored by three shepherds as the son of god. The focus of this oil painting is the baby Jesus. The only entity portrayed in this painting that isn’t poorly lit or ridden with a decent amount of contrast is Jesus.
This oil painting depicts Jesus Christ preaching at the Synagogue in Capernaum. This was an important event, as it was one of the first public teachings of Jesus. The focus of this artwork is Jesus. The people standing behind him are colored with much lighter, duller colors. Jesus is vibrant and stands out when compared to the other people.
This oil painting depicts Mary Magdalene deciding to follow Jesus Christ. One of the main elements that stand out in this painting is the color. It has an analogous color harmony, which consists of mostly blue and yellow. This picture also incorporates various shades of brown, and makes this piece very easy to look at.
This oil painting depicts the raging storm Jesus and his disciples were caught in one evening. Jesus stood up and demanded the storm to calm, and it did. The movement in this painting is extremely noticeable. The brushstrokes on the water are very thick, and create the illusion of rough waves crashing together.
This oil painting depicts Jesus Christ’s furious destruction of the Temple. After noticing people selling goods within the temple, he ran inside and destroyed people’s goods and property. Jesus stands out as the focus of this piece of art. Not only is Jesus closest to the viewer, but his colors are much more vibrant and noticeable.
This oil painting depicts the story of Jesus’ encounter with a Samaritan woman at a well. Jesus uses the water in the well to create an analogy with the “living water” that will grant eternal life. The focus of this piece is both Jesus and the Samaritan woman. They both contain vibrant colors and strong contrast, as opposed to the trees and nature behind them that is extremely dark and difficult to make out.
This painting captures the violence and intensity that erupted when Jesus began to destroy the markets that had set up business in the temple. There is a great sense of movement in this painting. We can see many people in the act of falling down, as well as many people with raised hands ready to strike.
This oil painting depicts Jesus Christ and his disciples eating at a table for their last meal together as a congregation. This supper took place just before Christ was betrayed by Judas. The obvious focus of this piece is Jesus. All of the disciples are looking straight at him, and he is located in the middle of the frame. Movement also stands out in this oil painting. The clothes and fabrics in the photo seem to be flowing.
This oil painting depicts the roman soldiers capturing Jesus Christ in the middle of the night. This happened after Jesus Christ’s disciple Judas betrayed him. Everything in this image appears to be moving, with mostly long, wispy brush strokes. There is also a great amount of contrast in the painting coming from the torch one of the soldiers is holding.
This oil painting portrays Jesus Christ as he is being whipped before his execution. The space in this oil painting seems fairly two dimensional. In the painting we see other significant figures in the Christian religion. On the left side of the painting we see a lady who is most likely Mary, the mother of Jesus. At the top of the painting we see God the Father, resting above clouds. This is to represent the significance of what Jesus is doing.
