“The Bible Project”: Regardless of Religious Orientation, Artistic Interpretation is Boundless

“The Bible Project”: Regardless of Religious Orientation, Artistic Interpretation is Boundless
BY AMANDA GRIEME
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

In light of April's Easter and Passover celebrations, it is the opportune time to introduce a New Jersey based art collaborative 'The Bible Project' implemented by New Jersey artist Dustin Parent.

“I've been working on painting scenes and characters from the Bible. We've all been affected in some way by this book: it has shaped our culture, our families, and the entire western world. Love it or hate it, it is here to stay,” says Parent, formerly of New Orleans.

“I've dubbed my first major installment as an artist 'The Bible Project,' in the spirit of Hollywood's 2014 'Year of The Bible.' With films such as 'Noah' starring Russell Crowe and 'Exodus' starring Christian Bale, there seems to be an unprecedented interest in the mainstream with all things biblical. I know, a lofty goal considering most artists wait until the end of their careers to take on the Bible. Warhol's final work was The Last Supper and Matisse's painted the Stations of the Cross with a long stick from a wheelchair to which he was bound.”
