Thank you to everyone involved in making the ‘Frida: Inside & Outside’ conference at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London such a success.  It was amazing to hear all the wonderful speakers. I left moved and truly inspired. And of course, it made me miss Mexico more than I do already ! 
I talked about ex-Votos as sites of inscription and memory. Here is one of my favourites showing an immigrant family praying for protection on their crossing of the Mexico-USA border. Work by Alfredo Vilchis, made in Mexico,2017.

Each one of us carries something in him/her, and it only gets heavier through the years - But there is no comparison with this man's load: Χριστόφορος, the one who carries Christ

“I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that everywhere, wherever you may be, the least plant may bring to you the clear remembrance of the Creator. If you see the grass of the fields, think of human nature, and remember the comparison of the wise Isaiah. “All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field.” - St Basil the Great

“A major prerequisite for the artist is an in-built need to journey to the center of the Self. There he discovers those pre-conscious awareness implanted in him prior to his own (physical) birth,” writes Boccia in his 1971 essay entitled, “The Unconscious and the Conceptual.” ... Edward E.

Church San Juan de Dios. Before entering the church, there is this charming little courtyard with various pieces of religious art work. Much more contemporary than I have seen in other churches here in Granada.

In May 1970, Boccia wrote in his journal, “Thru painting I exercise the spirit. I hope I am making significant statements about the spirit. I am happiest when I paint—though it is a struggle and full of disappointments.”

“Images from his childhood summers in Belmar have found their way into Edward Boccia's paintings through the years,” explains a 1999 article by Ashbury Park Press of N.J. “[Boccia] talks about shadows shifting on the Atlantic Ocean, waves smacking against jetties and piers lying wrecked after a storm.”
...
Boccia describes, "I paint the sea and fish a lot in various compositions, having spent all my young days at the ocean," Boccia said. "If I'd grown up in the woods in Colorado, I'd probably be painting something else."

Boccia created this painting in Rome, where he studied under a fellowship from the Italian Government in 1959.
…
In an article he penned for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1959, Boccia reflects upon the  European city, “Rome is modern architecture and machines—a delicious baroque city of things—yet it paces more for living and less for business.” The artist explains, “Italy is a time-filled timelessness, having the lyricism of Botticelli coupled with the forces of Michelangelo.”
…
Boccia describes his creative impulses, “I subjugate old techniques by putting them through the translation of my own images… that which calls me into action, instinctively from within myself, is the same voice which called others into action a thousand years ago.”

“With rich colors layered sparingly within, behind, over and around inky shades, Boccia creates powerful compositions that offer subtext with each painting,” states the description of the 2013 St. Louis University Art Museum exhibition, “Edward Boccia: Figurative Expressionist.” “His Enigma Portrait brings a notable solemnity and yet a splash of light that is unexpectedly and unmistakably mystic, however, nevertheless profound in its perspective.”

One might recognize a link between American artist Abraham Rattner, whose “Job” is pictured above, and Edward Boccia. In her 2015 Revista Forma article, art historian Rosa Berland (@rosalina_la_contessa) highlights the relationship between the two artists, “Washington University owned a picture by Rattner entitled Job and it is certain that Boccia knew of it, having helped hang the very work in a 1954 exhibition of sacred art at the artist‘s guild. The very mission of that show - to display the marriage of modernity and religious imagery in new work - is a theme integral to Boccia‘s lifetime oeuvre. Both Boccia and Rattner, in divergent styles, sought to physically depict an intangible spiritual conflict.”

Swipe to explore Boccia’s nine-panel painting, Eugene’s Journey (1996), which was featured in the 1996 Museum of Contemporary Art (@mocra.slu) exhibition, “Edward Boccia: Eye of the Painter.”
…
The exhibition introduction offers a captivating take on Boccia’s artistry: “Edward Boccia’s career as a painter may be poetically referred to as a grand house with many rooms. Some rooms, although elegant, are lived in briefly. Other rooms, made more comfortable by the artist’s personal associations, are occupied for years. No room is permanently closed. The artist moves freely from room to room, constantly borrowing ideas from where he has stayed before.”

One of the most frequently represented subjects in Western art, the Crucifix has come to symbolize far more than the historical and religion event itself. Here  is the modern version by a left brain artist, #melzaid. His magnificent piece addresses human suffering on a universal scale while celebrating the advent of resurrection .. @multispace_studios

Edward Boccia’s artwork was influenced by Max Beckmann, Paul Cézanne—and his very own mother. In a 2010 interview with the South County Times, Boccia stated, "My mother said, 'Ed, you've got to use outlines. You mothers have power – to this day, I can't get rid of the outlines."

Art by Charles Pabst, ‘Pentecost’, from the Rosary Series, series 4 - The Glorious Mysteries, date unknown. Picture 📸 from The Sacred Art Gallery website.
•
The complete Rosary series by Charles Pabst consists of four different Mysteries series, each showing keypoints in the life of Jesus. They are 1 - The Joyful Mysteries (Annunciation, Nativity etc.), 2 - The Luminous Mysteries (Baptism of Jesus, Eucharist etc.), 3 - The Sorrowful Mysteries (Agony in the Garden, Crucifiction etc.) and 4 - The Glorious Mysteries (Resurrection, Pentecost etc.). They can be ordered complete or seperate and in different card sizes via The Sacred Art Gallery. If you are planning on teaching your (older) children the New Testament, these would be wonderful to illustrate all the different stories. I really like how vibrant and strong they are, with a simplicity that brings a lot of strenght to the images. Recommendable. 🙂
•
‘In looking at a Charles Pabst painting, one clearly sees the bold brushstrokes, the freshness of color and his sense of wonder that fills each and every canvas, but these are only the outward manifestations of his inner soul. Here is a man of true conviction, devoted to his family and to his faith as well as to his craft.’ Words by Lew Dietch, Editor, ‘Art Book of the New West’.

Art by community project Vie de Jesus Mafa, ‘Pentecost’, Cameroon 1973. Picture 📸 from the Vanderbilt Divinity Library, Nashville, USA.
•
I really like the way the ‘Vie de Jesus Mafa’ paintings depicts the stories from the bible in a African setting, with an African Jesus. I’ve always felt the depiction of Jesus as an overly devout (skywards rolling eyes), blonde, bearded guy as rather awkward - faith has many faces. 🙂 And by the way, such a beautiful Mary in this painting too!
•
More information on the beautiful paintings from the Vie de Jesus Mafa project in 1970’s Cameroon, taken from www.lentproject.com: ‘Vie de Jesus Mafa (Life of Jesus Mafa) was an initiative undertaken in the 1970s to help teach the gospel in Northern Cameroon. French Catholic missionary François Vidil worked with Mafa Christian communities in Cameroon to create an enormous catalogue of paintings depicting the life of Jesus as an African man. The plan was to build a resource that would help Mafa people to teach from the bible in a way that connects with their community. The Life of Jesus Mafa took a long time to produce. Vidil formed a team of local church leaders, theologians and a carefully selected artist. The team would spend time in Mafa communities, reading bible passages and getting people to reenact them. Vidil and his team would photograph their reenactments as the artist sketched them. These sketches and photographs became the basis of the final paintings in this collection. What an amazing way to produce art for the sake of mission! The collection includes more than 70 scenes, which covers pretty much every story from all four Gospels.’

Art by Mark Wiggin, ‘Pentecost’, unknown date. Picture 📸 via Veritasse Heavenly Art.
•
Words about this painting and artist from the Veritasse website: ‘The verse on the back of the card reads, "We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit." 1 John 4 : 13. Mark Wiggin says, "I was inspired by the verses in Acts 2, which describe the day of Pentecost: When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them."’
•
About Mark Wiggin: ‘As God’s words cry out from the Bible I am inspired to bring the scene to life. I love to use free and loose brushwork; bringing vibrancy and energy to the completed work. I want the paintings to be engaging and thought-provoking, capturing something of the spirit of God and always leaving.’

Picture 📸 via Veritasse Heavenly Art. • Words about this painting and artist from the Veritasse website: ‘The verse on the back of the card reads, "We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit." 1 John 4 : 13. Mark Wiggin says, "I was inspired by the verses in Acts 2, which describe the day of Pentecost: When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them."’ • About Mark Wiggin: ‘As God’s words cry out from the Bible I am inspired to bring the scene to life. I love to use free and loose brushwork; bringing vibrancy and energy to the completed work. I want the paintings to be engaging and thought-provoking, capturing something of the spirit of God and always leaving.’ • • • #pentecost  #pinksterren  #pfingsten  #pentecostés  #whitsunday  #whitsun  #withmonday  #pentecostmonday  #tweedepinksterdag  christianfeasts #waldorffeasts  #waldorftraditions  #christianfaith  #catholicfaith  #fecristiana  #antroposofie  #antroposphy  #antroposofia  #waldorfschool  #waldorfskolan  #steinerschule  #vrijeschool  #religiousart  #christianart  #artereligioso  #religiösekunst  #religieuzekunst  #contemporaryreligiousart  #waldorfnewbiesartonmonday  #markwigginart  #markwiggin

Another flying visit to my ‘Saltcellars’ at #casulapowerhouse for the launch of The 65th Blake Prize. It is a beautifully curated show and the lighting was stunning. Thanks to the team @casulapowerhouse and congratulations especially to all of the artists and award winners! #blakeprize #blakeprize2018 #melbourneartist #feministphilosophy #feministtheology #contemporaryreligiousart #contemporaryart #rebekahpryor

Okay, here’s a close-up and zoom out of the full composition, still in progress. “Living Waters” (paralytic man at the Pool of Bethesda). You know, it’s funny; I can spend months on a concept, fine tuning it, letting it marinate, doing a lot of prep, and when I finally get to canvas, things take shape pretty rapidly in a few hours. Here’s one evening’s work. 30” x 48”. #figurativepainting #figurativeart #contemporaryreligiousart #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #fineart #portraitoftheday #portrait #richesonoils #gamblinradiantcolors #rosedatocdall #mormon #lds #ldsart #wip #onmyeasel
