Do not hold on to me by He Qi

Come immerse yourself in the energetic, colorful and contemporary art of He Qi, who blends Chinese folk customs and traditional Chinese painting with the western art of the Middle and Modern Ages, adding his own spin, techniques and style.

From his start painting Mao’s portrait during the Cultural Revolution in China, he learned about Renaissance painters, studied in Europe, and became the first Chinese to earn a PhD in religious arts. “I wanted to create peaceful scenes. We need to hear the peaceful voice of heaven,” he says.

Fully Chinese, fully Christian, his images invite us to re-imagine Biblical stories in dynamic and vibrant ways.

O Key by Ansgar Holmberg

Seven short verses are sung before the Magnificat during the Evening Prayer of the Church on the seven days before the vigil of Christmas. Each begins with the exclamation “O.” Each ends with a plea for the Messiah to come.

These O Antiphons, as they are known, were composed in the seventh or eighth century when monks put together texts from the Old Testament which looked forward to the coming of our salvation. They form a rich mosaic of scriptural images, and became very popular in the Middle Ages.

Artist Ansgar Holmberg’s images invite a transformation from the traditional O Antiphons into the context of evolutionary cosmology. Poetry by Joan Mitchell, CSJ, complements these images celebrating the incarnation of God as one of us in Jesus.

 

Artist:

Ansgar Holmberg, CSJ, studied with renowned liturgical artist Ade Bethune. Holmberg’s color-saturated works are more reminiscent of folk art than conventional religious images.  Her art arises from her own spiritual journey and life changes.  Her interpretations of themes are not fixed in the manner of icons, but ever changing through time.
