Albany : The Old Jail Art Center- Cell Series Rachel Hecker: Jesus Paintings

September 20, 2014 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Rachel Hecker, Jesus #2, (David Gilmour), 2011.

Houston artist Rachel Hecker culls advertising and Hollywood - languages of spiritual poverty - as a source to create devotional paintings of Jesus. The images are void of the normally associated iconography such as crown of thorns, blood, or hand gestures. "I am not trying to lead the viewer by loading the image, but rather touch on more nuanced associations that are firmly established in the collective consciousness. Each Jesus painting is a different iteration of a fixed set of ideals."
