Drawing the Word: Wonderfully Weird

Fine Arts

The Weird and Wonderful Church Drawings of John Hendrix:   This illustrator is reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch, the late-medieval painter best known for his busy allegorical visions of biblical scenes. But viewers this side of the Reformation will note that, unlike Bosch, Hendrix draws explicitly from the Word and words. Most of his sketches include passages of Scripture or hymn lyrics or C. S. Lewis quotes. As such, Hendrix may offer a distinctly Protestant aesthetic, one that takes the Bible very seriously, without always depicting it literally.
