FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 3, 2012 - (CHICAGO)  -- The South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC) will host a special art exhibit, “Son of Man (book II): A reVision of the Christ “ that opens on Friday, October 5th with a reception from 6 - 9 p.m.  
The exhibition is the second in a three-part series of acrylics, mixed media and collage works, in which artist Raymond Thomas repurpose those images, stripping away dogma and traditionalized visual tenets to create a new vision of the Christ; a “re-vision” of personal spiritual relevance, not only for himself but for his community and for society as a whole.
Thomas’ imagery for this series is set within a contemporary urbanized landscape that echoes the sentiment of Matthew 11:19 which reads:  “The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.”
He uses abstraction and abstract expressionism to create “mini-series” within the larger concept. His hope is when experienced together, his works will convey the idea of the multiple planes of reality in which The Son of Man exists and operates in our minds, body’s and spirits.
The opening reception is free to the public and the he exhibit will run through November 3 at SSCAC.
