Bruce Herman is an artist. That’s what he does. And it has been our privilege to have his massive paintings (Sacra Conversazione) in the Cody Center this fall. The paintings represent the largest installation we can remember hosting.
Laity Lodge is built on the conviction that the work of the laity (and this includes painters) is indeed a high calling. And so we find ourselves quite interested in what he’s up to. How does he think about his work? What are the implications of faith on painting? How does an ancient text converse with the contemporary moment?
We recently took the opportunity to sit down with Bruce to talk about the work, exhibiting at Laity Lodge, and his career-long effort to “form an artistic, intellectual, and spiritual bridge between tradition and the contemporary moment.” Enjoy.
