Ron Spickett: A Selection from the Judas Series

November 26, 2014 - April 26, 2015

The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is pleased to be exhibiting the work of Ron (Gyo-Zo) Spickett, a Calgary-based artist, poet, and ordained Buddhist lay-priest. The Judas Series is a collection of Ecclesiastic paintings that exhibit the artist’s interest in using spiritual imagery to explore the essential nature of the human condition. The paintings are at once iconic and archetypal: bold in size and title, but with the imagery touching upon something more universal. Through Biblical narratives the artist is inviting us to consider the importance of the individual experience. An experience that, like the figures themselves, is complex, ambiguous, and multifaceted. 

We encourage you to visit in person to see the exhibition in the flesh!
