Rahr West Art Exhibit For UW-Manitowoc Alumni
So the other day I went to the grand opening of an exhibit at the local Rahr West Art Museum where they were featuring the art from UW-Manitowoc Alumni to celebrate 50 years of their art program. My art was among the many things on display there (above). One of my old professors (Berel Lutsky) set it up. He, the dean of students and city mayor were there to say a few words of kindness to kick start the exhibit as well. It was really amazing to see so much local support as well as such a diverse range of talent for the exhibit. I was surely touched and I thank all who attended. For all those who are in the area or will be in the area I encourage you to check the gallery out. The exhibit is open until December 8, 2013. Also, it’s free to get in.
Aparecidos (The Appeared) is my ongoing memorial painting installation for the 30000 victims of Argentine state terrorism/genocide. Between 1976 and 1983, the government abducted, tortured and murdered civilians in a brutal campaign of terror. I have painted 300 portraits this past year and continue. Brian Carlson

"Contemporary religious painter Norbert Kox is one of America’s most important Visionary artists. His self-described ‘apocalyptic visual parables’ utilize powerful symbolic metaphors aiming to shake modern man from his spiritual malaise and clear away centuries worth of mistranslations of the Bible."
