Who say to a tree, 'You are my father,' And to a stone, 'You gave me birth.' For they have turned their back to Me, And not their face; But in the time of their trouble they will say, 'Arise and save us.' (Jeremiah 2:27)
Artists have been rendering the evolution of man’s pursuit of religion and spirituality, from the beginning, when we contemplated then tried to explain the world around us. Eventually we reached a point in civilization when men considered themselves gods, enlightenment thought killed the concept of the divine. Yet, in times of crisis, as a child we revert back to faith. Not only can it relate to our overall history in the macro, but in the micro, an individual who evolves over a lifetime. Art has always reflected this beauty, projecting hope, escaping the chaos and suffering of this world.
This is what we will attempt to exhibit during the "Idolatry" show. Art that captures the faith and spirituality we all seek.
