As a person living in the world God has created, and as a pastor testifying Jesus Christ in God’s special grace, I announce my 5th solo art exhibition on the theme of “God is Love”. Both in the history of mankind and in the history of Christianity, religious artworks have generally been separated from everyday life. For this reason, museums often hold special exhibitions with the theme of “Christian Icon” which only present religious artifacts. Contrary to this trend, I seek to interpret Christianity in everyday language. My works contain animals, plants, insects, and landscapes that exist in God; and sometimes still life objects and people I encounter in daily life. Most of these works are based on the Bible and Christian ideas through metaphors and analogies. This aspect will provide many stories and values to those who will later evaluate my works. Since I became a pastor, I try to refrain from directly painting Jesus Christ or biblical figures and events. Such works can be idolized and can give false preconceptions to Christians who believe Jesus Christ without seeing Him. My works, which include both abstract and realism on one screen, belong to postmodernism in terms of their forms. People often think my paintings are something brand new, but I’m just one of many postmodern artists. However, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, I am painting for God and for His glory and name, and not for myself or for something else. According to man’s chief end to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever, I express on canvas God, who is love, and the world He has created. I hereby give thanks, glory, and praise to God who has allowed me to hold this exhibition along with the publication of “God is Love: the Order of Salvation”. Please join us for the event. I would be honored by your presence.
