Ecce Homo: Memory of Vermilion

ver·mil·ion
/vərˈmilyən/
noun
     a brilliant toxic red pigment made from mercury sulfide (cinnabar).

Ecce Homo ("behold the man") are the Latin words used by Pontius Pilate when he presents the scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion. These images are created in response to political changes unfolding on a global scale. Two specific events that triggered the making of these images were the British vote to leave the European Union, known as Brexit, and the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States. The Ecce Homo series of images bear witness to this political change.
