DN: Mr. Cris Gianakos - 2008

CM: Barbara Knight's Cristos is a portrait of artist Cris Gianakos in his guise as a spiritual leader. No sooner Knight saw Cris playing with a kitchen towel and wearing it around his head in his New York studio, than she took a snapshot of him, without loosing any of the moment's charm. It is exactly the snapshot effect of capturing a moment that is intimate as well as loaded with spiritual dimension - for the resemblance of its sitter to a spiritual leader of the time and place of Christ - that makes this portrait amazing and memorable.
