The Cross of Love is an artwork series created by Crad's longtime friend, Robert Hay, inspired by Crad. It includes the Cross of Passion, Cross of Beauty, Cross of Caring, and Cross of Intellect. "The Cross Series
has helped me to visualize different kinds of love, and here I have selected the four kinds I feel Crad epitomized...I am so glad his legacy has been truly established now and that his intention to criticize life's hypocrisies and absurdities can be seen is all his works... Hitting the streets for 17 yrs. was an Olympian feat that won the hearts and minds of his fellow Toronto pedestrians, or conversely won the antipathy and extreme reactions of those whom he addressed and confronted on a daily basis. In that sense, he was an Aquarian reformer and humanitarian, true to his astrological imperative of that sign. Crad as alter ego, gave Lou the license to be more than was humanly possible, to reach out in ways that only well written, forceful and meaningful words can achieve. Now it is up to us, the reader, to put the pieces of his oft puzzling words together."
Thanks Robert for sending these in.
