Paintings I love: Yongsung Kim’s The Hand of God

I’m not usually a fan of paintings of Jesus, but I love this one. At first, I thought Jesus was surfing (I can actually imagine him doing that!), but then I realised he was standing on the water, with his hand reaching into it. I love the composition, the colour, the light—and that Jesus’ face is obscured, because we don’t actually know what he looked like.
