RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory A. Disney-Britton
"With You Always" (2014) by Devan Shimoyama
Christians in today's art world often feel alone because we will not conform. We refuse to hide our faith as required by artistic elites, and we refuse to conform to religious conventions. In Devan Shimoyama's glitter-sprinkled portrait "With You Always," (above) at LA's Samuel Freeman gallery, I was reminded of this dilemma. In it, I see a soul uniting with the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, three Persons but one God, and I remember Matthew 28:20: "I am with you always, to the end of the age."
