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”
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”
The opening reception is free to the public and the he exhibit will run through November 3 at SSCAC.
