This colourful catalogue features paintings and statements by five leading contemporary Asian artists, Sawai Chinnawong (Thailand), He Qi (China), Nalini Jayasuriya (Sri Lanka), Nyoman Darsane (Bali) and Wisnu Sasongko (Thailand), which highlight the very different ways artists of diverse cultures today perceive Biblical tales. Over forty new paintings are explored showing how the Judeo-Christian narrative has been adapted for both western and indigenous audiences. Though greatly influenced by regional and cultural traditions, many of these artists have also been exposed to western Judeo-Christian teachings, and it is this mixture of influences which is so striking in their work. The book considers the importance of these works to the development and exportation of Asian Biblical Art to the West and its reception, audience and patronage. AUTHOR: Patricia C. Pongracz is chief curator, Museum of Biblical Art, New York. She is the co-author of The Next Generation: Contemporary Expressions of Faith (2005) and Threads of Faith: Recent Works from the Women of Color Quilters Network (2004); John W. Cook is Professor Emeritus, Yale University and co-author of The New Testament: An Introduction to It's Literature and History (1992); Volker Kuster is professor of Intercultural Theology, Kampen Theological University, The Netherlands, and co-author of The Many Faces of Jesus Christ: Intercultural Christology ((2001) SELLING POINTS: Presents paintings by leading contemporary Asian artists workings in Bali, China, Sri Lanka and Thailand Features colour plates of over 40 of the artworks and artists' statements, and includes essays by leading scholars Patricia C.
