RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK -- David Frye

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
David B. Frye’s “Hillbillies Board the Arc Each With Their Golden Bull,” at NYC's Spring/Break Art Fair 2020, March 3-8.
Born in England in 1963, and raised in Indianapolis, David B. Frye is best known for sexualizing "false historical narratives" as a form of protest against violence. In 2009, his Lincoln Paintings exhibit in Indianapolis prompted more than a few patrons to comment that he'd "offended Jesus" for his depictions of long snake-like penises. Frye said, "I was flattered that Jesus found time to hate my paintings." Find his "Hillbillies Board the Arc" this week at NYC's Spring/Break Art Fair (Recent pricing $4-5K). Jesus makes David Frye, our artist of the week.
