"Christ with Wound" (2020) by Israel Solomon; 24x24 inches. Collection of Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts
Before COVID-19, Black artists had 28-days in February, but prayed for 365 days where Black art matters. That prayer is beginning to be answered in Indianapolis, as artists, like Israel Solomon, paint murals over boarded-up storefronts damaged after peaceful protests. Solomon's work is an inspiring fusion of cubism and pop art, and reminded us of Saint Paul's letter to young Timothy, " not neglect your gift, which was given to you...". (1 Timothy 4:12-14a). We purchased his "Christ with Wound," and that makes Israel Solomon, our collector's tip of the week.
