Melissa Weinman | Saints' Stories
Design by DeLucca Graphic Design
Photography by Susan Dirk/Under the Light
Foreword by Richard V. West
Essay by Ruth Weisberg
This catalogue was published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with its exhibition Melissa Weinman: Saints’ Stories (April 4–May 18, 1997), a part of the Frye’s Viewpoints series, which is devoted to the work of contemporary artists who are redefining the concepts of representation and content in modern painting.
Weinman’s images of saints and mythological characters reinvest well-worn legends with contemporary concerns. The idea of loss and recovery, expressed in universal or highly personal terms, is particularly evident in the works. By divesting the saints of their pious props and attitudes, Weinman revitalizes them with individuality and moving personal dignity.
This publication includes a foreword by Richard V. West, exhibition checklist along with full-color illustrations of the exhibition artworks, an essay by Ruth Weisberg, artist statement, and biography.
