The Kairos Gallery is delighted to announce the September 3 Opening of the exhibition Seeing Christ in the Darkness, featuring a variety of graphic works by Georges Rouault, 20th century master artist. Seeing Christ in the Darkness features more than 18 original prints from his Miserere Series as well as works from Fleurs du Mal (I and II) and the Passion Series.

“Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the few modern artists whose work was clearly religious,” says Bill Dyrness, Dean Emeritus of Theology and Culture at Fuller Seminary. “But though he was a life-long Roman Catholic, his work was anything but Christian in the traditional sense. [In fact] for most of his life the Church resisted his work—not until the end of his life did he receive a church commission. But the graphic art in this exhibition, done at the height of the artist’s powers, shows how deeply the artist identified with people’s suffering and indeed saw within the darkness the salvation that Christ brought.” This certainly makes this an exhibit for our times.

It is appropriate that the focus of this exhibit is on Rouault as printmaker, for it was especially in his graphic work that his religious vision took shape. Seeing Christ in the Darkness is an excellent collection of the world-class prints of one of the most important printmakers of the 20th century.
