Sacred Ancient Art Embracing Modern Vision

Having been a curator of catholic art, late Benedictine Brother Nathan Cochran, wasn’t a recluse even though he lived the life of a monk. He always was keen on exhibiting religious arts to the taste and preference of the modern day believers. One good example is the St. Vincent College gallery that will be hosting the Juried Catholic Arts Exhibition on the 7th of December. It includes sculptures, paintings and icons in the Traditional style, and contemporary art and photos that are enhanced digitally. This also includes a cubism acrylic painting to the list. The person who started this exhibit is Cochran in the year 2001 in order to bring the contemporary painting to limelight but he passed away when these works were under way at the age of 57 in July. In this exhibit original pieces will be placed. Most of the paintings will be traditional and the winner is a picture that depicts an exhausted Christ, named as the “Temptation in the Wilderness,” a Neilson Carlin’s classic. The modern day touch is visible on similar works of art like the “The Seventh Sorrow” by Eve Palguta. The painting is depicted as Mary lying crumpled up with one hand near the discarded crown of thorns and the other bloody hand clutching at her heart. Some other paintings too fall in line like Christopher Ruane’s “Rebuild My Church”, where the digital photographer had used 100 images depicting the acceptance of Pope Francis’ Jesus call for rebuilding the church. The St. Vincent Archabbey house and college has a permanent collection of about 4000 paintings started from the era of King Ludwig I of Bavaria who lived during the period 1786-1868. In the previous exhibit the guest spoke about how these exhibits teach us about the essence of being a Christian and they carry forward the ancient stories through the contemporary art form. This exhibition mainly highlights the specialties in the Christianity through the contemporary art. Read also Paintings That Honored The Famous Painter’s 133rd Birth...
