Rick Shaefer  - Exhibit at Brigham Young University

May 18 - September 29, 2018

 

Rick Shaefer's master work, the Refugee Trilogy, is now on view at the Museum of Art at Brigham Young University in Utah.

Refugee Trilogy is a suite of large-scale charcoal drawings that is a reaction to the ongoing immigration crisis unfolding across the globe and reflects the three thematic scenes that began to distill for me the journeys taken by refugees everywhere. The three triptychs, each measuring 96 x 166 inches, are in a chronology suggested by news reports.

The three works employ the vernacular of the Baroque (primarily incorporating various figurative elements of a wide assortment of Rubens’ paintings) to express this contemporary debacle in a language both familiar and historical: reminding us of the tenacious persistence of this epic human tragedy.”
