Summary note:
With The Good Shepherd and other sculptures for the not so converted, Sven `t Jolle returns to his work of the past twenty years in search of Biblical imagery and Christian iconography. This quest leads him through a labyrinth of images, from a Shiite Pietà and the joyous arrival of Jesus in Malibu to detention on Christmas Island. Associative links are made between disparate cultural elements and socio-political subjects. For the artist, religious references form merely a foundation of meaning in working towards a broader societal story. The artist draws upon his vast sketchbook archive, among other sources, to create a book that affords insight into his artistic process as well as the train of thought behind his multi-faceted oeuvre.00Exhibition: Voorkamer, Lier, Belgium (10.10.-22.11.2015).
