Forces oil on canvas Size: 180x122cm

Two years ago, I had featured Joel Rea’s oil paintings. And just recently he launched an explosive new collection with dramatic scenes and titles, such as “Forces” (at top), “Edge of the World,” “Rise of the Captured,” and more. If you take a look at his website, you will see other examples—one a reenactment of Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper,” and another inspired by Moses’ crossing of the Red Sea.
