Popeeeeee presentation

  1. 1. Pope up
  2. 2. Andrew Purvis Trindity Triptych This Triptych created by Andrew Purvis is very unique in the way that he used an embossing technique in the background and the humor of adding a halo like object behind his telentubie like figure really makes his paintings stand out. I had the great opportunity to talk with him and he mentioned to me that, “Everyone knows that telentubies had TVs in their stomach and I kind of wanted to represent that into religion, its just something to think about”.
  3. 3. Simone Spicer The Sisters Simone always dabbled in paper mache but she has been working with milk jugs for two years. She had said; “I found it fascinating when experimenting with the jugs that all that was done was a diagonal cut and then the cut piece was stuck inside the jug which then made a face like object”. These jugs have been a part of her works for years and they have been shown in Plaza Art Supply. When I asked her about this piece “The Sisters” she said; “I vied them as the women's section like the choir or the fact that in old times or in some countries today women can only look and have to be silent.” I asked her how she came up with these jug faces and her reply was “I thought about light, shade, and form but my ideas were not religious but spiritual. I am also fascinated by the idea of organized religion, and find the beauty and horror in the fact that it causes war in politics.” Simone also told me that she found it odd when creating these faces from a manufactured form that just by pushing the cut piece in a little more than some others made them look either ugly or pretty. She said its funny but confused on
  4. 4. Stephanie Kirk Photographs-Church Sign Project This captivating Church Sign Project created by Stephanie Kirk, is really eye opening if you take a moment to read all of the signs that she has photographed. Some signs are a mockery of the church, a welcoming into the community and also a means to open your eyes to the hate in the world. I feel that she did an outstanding job with this project!
  5. 5. Joan menapace Tend Your Flock Joan Menapace took this flag which represents transgender people in the world, and turned it into a papal symbol. This piece, as beautiful of a symbol that it may be, also poses the question in its title; Tend Your Flock, because with out of 78.2 million Catholics in America, it is estimated that 312,800 are transgender. Poking at the pope with all of the hate towards the LGBTQ community the question, “Who is tending the flock?” gets thrown around.
  6. 6. Holly smithNun of Your Business This wooden statue created by Holly Smith has a bit of humor behind it with the fact of making a nun some sort of a peeping Tom, looking into peoples windows. The way the piece was place diagonal from John Menapace’s “Tend Your Flock” was ingenious and really made the point of the nosey nun come on very clear and strong. This was a very enjoyable piece to see for myself.
  7. 7. Ellen Benson Altar: Saints, Sinners and Recycled Virgins Tucked away in a corner but on a stage like surface this altar was created, and it really seemed like an actual shrine for people to come pray to Mary. This beautiful piece is very inviting to viewers since they can just walk on up to take a look. It seems funny when you take a closer look and see not only figures from the Catholic religion but religions from different cultures as well and how they depict their holy figures. Ellen Benson’s Altar is quite beautiful and intriguing to the eyes, I couldn’t stay away.
  8. 8. Erica Volpe May You Be Blessed May You Be Blessed by Erica Volpe is a perfect piece to have for This Pope Up art exhibit in the fact that to me it brings the serious aspect together with the humor in the show. This piece shows the message that Pope Francis has given to many time after time. As you can see on his body there are some holes which signify to me that not everyone is perfect, even the Pope. The message in this piece for me is that some of us might be missing God from our lives and maybe with Pope Francis being the most kind and beautifully genuine Pope that we have had since Pope John Paul then people might start to believe and have faith in God again so those holes can start to close.
  9. 9. Betsy Alexander Help Us Mary Help Us Mary will musically move you! To Listen to the song you have to have a GR reader app on your phone. Betsy Alexander sang this song for her piece and she chose this particular song to go around Pope Francis’s favorite painting “Mary, Undoer of Knots” which was painted by Johann Melchoir Georg Schmittdner in 1700. This piece is more on the serious side and shows the beauty in the faith people have in Mary.
  10. 10. LOU SERNA Bingo Jesus Bingo Jesus may offend a lot of people that come across with it, but the artist Lou Serna created this piece in hopes of not boring anyone but also hoped that his Abuelita will never find out about “Bingo Jesus”. The message behind this to me is very confusing, I am not sure if it is meant to be just a joke or if Serna is trying to tell us that religion or God/Jesus is just a game or joke in itself. Bingo is really a game of chance and you will not always win. I kind of feel that Serna is trying to say that without God/Jesus or religion you will not win in this game of life.
  11. 11. Patrick cabry Frank Visits Philly Patrick Cabry very obviously makes this sculpture out of humor that Pope Francis will be in Philadelphia shortly but it is also sensed that Cabry sort of welcomes Pope Francis with an open table. This piece is very funny but also true in the fact that Philadelphia is welcoming the Pope with open arms and maybe for some an invitation for a meal.
