A crowded opening and an absolutely fascinating collection of works.
I am not going to elaborate on the other artist works as you can find information elsewhere (for example here). This was an invitation event at a public space and represented a broad scope of religious beliefs from accomplished artists of various ages.
I thought Paul's pieces were very strong and represented the Catholic perspective in an honest and powerful way- no doubt about that.
Perhaps this article sums up the exhibit better than I ever could. "They hunger for a Face" ....and the “personal testimony” (of the New Evangelization). It will take time to read-
pause a moment.
This summer Paul and I worked on icon boards for this and other projects.
The icon sides are the traditional clay bole layers and the paint is egg tempera with 24Kt gold halos.
Paul did something very unique here. He angled the boards out slightly and then painted on embellishments Additionally, he chiseled out the ends of the support beams giving them an attractive, layered look.
Here's another artwork of his link.
