Gary Bunt paints a naive world, where simple pleasures are valued and cherished. In Jesus Sayeth Thou Shalt Not Steal but his Dog had Stolen, Bunt evokes Christian teachings and tells a story which is filled with warmth and humour. He wants the image to depict his faith in a new and contemporary manner. The painting’s title does not directly relate to a particular psalm, it refers instead to Bunt’s highly individualized and loose interpretation of different Christian messages. Jesus Sayeth Thou Shalt Not Steal but his Dog had Stolen tells a story that is built around a simple gesture and a mischievous dog. In Bunt’s warmhearted and generous paintings, animals are used to define the people depicted; they are the jester in the drama pointing the way to a smile or a laugh or just an acknowledgment of life’s contradictions. In this particular painting, Jesus reprimands the dog for stealing a bone, proving that no matter the level of training, all animals are fallible!

Each print is hand signed by the artist and hand numbered.
