Hearing the Voice of God – Lenten Art Show

2 - webtitle

 

 

I wanted to offer something a bit different for Lent this year. Usually during Lent, if churches put up any kind of artwork, it’s the stations of the cross imagery. I have offered my own interpretation of that in my Stations in the Street show…. which has been very successful.

Maybe it’s because I’m training to be a Spiritual Director, and maybe it’s because of my own prayer practice, but this Lent I wanted to invite communities to practice listening to the voice of God for Lent. Giving up something for Lent, which is a common practice, is really about that…. about trying to remove or add something to help align oneself to the presence of God. Not that that is a tired ole thing… not at all. But I wanted to offer something that was in the same vein… but had a bit different spin to it.

So here is the imagery… and here’s what I wrote about the show….

Hearing always begins with honesty. Which sounds easy enough. But if you’ve ever really tried to be completely honest… well it’s pretty scary. Often we think we need to be something “other” or “something” better to approach God. But this leads us to the opposite of honesty. This is why Jesus says when you pray, go into a closet (I prefer the shower) and pray in secret… because when you’re all alone you’ll be your most honest self. Honest about fears, doubts, skepticism, hopes, goals, dreams, pains, questions, anxieties, desires, loves, etc. This is what prayer is: a conversation about everything. A doorway to hear God’s voice has always been inside you. The key is honesty.

There are tools that can help us get better at this honest conversation: Words and Images. Often we use Words to help give language to that honest conversation. We can also use Imagery to do this as well because we all know a picture can say a thousand words. The key is to understand that these Words and Images are not the content itself. They are excavation tools. They help exhume the real content: the ongoing ever-present conversation between you and the Divine.

When dealing with art imagery, a fine question is “what does this mean?” An even better question is “what is this bringing out of me?” These twelve images are excavation tools to the honest conversation. In this season of Lent, we look to Jesus as our model and guide to this very conversation. All the statements are His… and all imagery is pointing to His invitation into the Kingdom of Heaven. Good digging!

FAQ’S

How should I print these?

I used Fedex Office to print out the images at 36 inches by 48 inches. I’m told you can do this Staples or any other large format corporate printer.

You want them to print on paper that is used for blueprints. It’s called bond paper. It’s very lightweight and fairly inexpensive.

At Fedex Office, they print in black and white for around 87 cents a square foot. That makes each one of these prints around $9… and you have 12 stations plus the description… so that makes printing out this show a cost of around $120.

You can always print the show smaller if you like. I have formatted all these images to print out at 36”x48” at the largest… and anything smaller is possible.

 

What if we want to wheat paste this outside? And I’ve never wheat pasted before?

I watched this video of Sheperd Fairey walking through his whole process of putting art up. I found it extremely helpful when wheat pasting myself:

Included in the package is a recipe to make your own wheat paste… but I also found that this was a great product to use.

 

Can we hang this show inside?

Absolutely. You should make this fit best with whatever is best for your community.

 

Okay. Best of luck everyone. Let me know how I can help!

NASHVILLE FRIENDS!!!!

Wanted to invite you to a special event next Thursday FEB 8th in your hood.

I’ll be running through new material for my next one man show called SAY YES: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up On Yourself. I’m still putting all the audio/visual stuff together, but to help create a format to run through the concepts, I’m partnering with my friend Nick Laparra of the Lets Give A Damn podcast to do a live taping of his podcast at the Blood Water Mission Headquarters in downtown Nashville.

The show was inspired by the painful experience of when your idealized life and self don’t meet up with your real life and self…. and the dreams you’ve always had for you life seemingly end. Losing your dreams is a sucky sucky feeling… and there is a strong desire to give up and not dream anymore. But maybe the falling apart is exactly what you need to move from the fake dream into the deep interior desire that was always meant to blossom? We’re going to talk about 3 life hacks/practices that can help with this movement forward… including a wide range of topics like: parenthood, wonder, body image, kanye west, end times prophecies, our favorite things, and of course that we’re all going to die. I’m an artist who wears mostly black… of course we are going to talk about dying….

Anyway, I can promise it won’t be boring. Netflix will always be there. Come out, invite some friends, and let’s make a magic night of it.

Where:  Blood Water Mission Office – 521 8th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203

When: 7pm/730pm… working on a special musical guest

Cost: suggested $5 donation at door….

Birmingham Show!!!! – We Are Not Troubled Guests

wantg_web_bhma

Birmingham! I’m so excited to be putting on a performance of WE ARE NOT TROUBLED GUESTS in your beloved town.

This is my story of what happens when pain in your life (in any form) seemingly destroys how you think everything worked…. and maybe that was the thing you had been asking for all along. It’s fun, poignant, and the best thing you’ll see in awhile. Even better than The Walking Dead season 5.

Watch the video below to see a bit more….

I could use your help getting the word out on this one. Would love it if you sent this page to some friends you want to invite with you to the show!

The show is going to be at a new venue that is just being finished. Excited to kick off the space!

SOLAS – Finishing Project & Downloadable Resource

SOLASLIDE

 

Last weekend I finished my third and final weekend of my Artist In Residency at Saddleback Church down in Orange County, CA. I was commissioned to image the Five “Solas” of the Reformation… this being the 500th anniversary and all. It was a fun project and I was thankful for the opportunity to work with all the fantastic artists from the Saddleback Visual Arts Community.

Many of you have asked if you can use these images for your celebrations of this 500th year… so I put together a downloadable package that I think is reasonable for any budget. If it’s not… email me and we can work something out. But CLICK HERE if you’d like to download these images for use.
