About the Work
Sweet Jesus, 2005
11.5 x 17.5 inches
Archival digital print
About Sweet Jesus, on the “cover” of his faux ‘CQ’ magazine, he states that “it’s simply a witness to a historic collision. Since both sides (religion and gay rights) believe they have the right of way and refuse to yield, they’ll have to sort it out in the courts.” This painting is the first of a planned 10 part series of collisions. In between paintings, Quashie continues to finance his art as a writer.
OTHER PATRON PRINTS
Colin Quashie – Charleston, SC
By exploring the reservoir of possibilities offered by popular cultural imagery, media-based communication and satire, Colin Quashie investigates serious cultural, social and political ideas and issues, with sometimes raucous, sometimes genial, tongue-in-cheek humor. On occasion, his wry, ironic, and irreverent art works disturb and/or offend the audience, the intent; to spark popular debate and discussion by forcing them to consider issues they may prefer to avoid.
ABOUT THE PATRON PRINT PROGRAM:
Each year we offer a new set of limited edition prints available exclusively to our members at the Postmodernist level and up. Artists who have been a part of the Halsey Institute’s programming have specially created these prints for us. Beginning at the POSTMODERNIST level ($350), you may choose from one of the prints we have available. Many of the prints are featured on the walls of our hall of Patron Prints located on the first floor of The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts, just down the hall of the Halsey Institute. Gradually, you can build your art collection while supporting adventurous contemporary art in Charleston!
