Item description for The Next Generation: Contemporary Expressions Of Faith by Patricia C. Pongracz & Wayne Roosa...
Overview Foreword by Ena Heller If you're a contemporary artist using biblical themes, you must be either offensively radical or sentimentally traditional, right? Well, not exactly, according to The Next Generation. Featuring the works of forty-four North American artists in media ranging from painting and sculpture to photography and mixed-media collage, this unique volume illustrates the creative breadth of present-day art inspired by the Judaeo-Christian tradition. Art historian Wayne Roosa interprets the pieces displayed, unveiling the complex creative processes at work in them, while Patricia Pongracz gives a brief overview of Christians in the Visual Arts, the grassroots organization that provides a community for artists working with biblical themes. The entries themselves feature full-color reproductions of each piece, making The Next Generation both a beautiful coffee-table book and a must-have for those working at the intersection of faith and art.
