Chris B. Murray "Seasons Change"

Utilizing mediums such as watercolor, graphite, ink, pastel, charcoal, gouache, gold leaf and ink stamp, Chris B. Murray has enjoyed a successful exhibition history in the Midwest. This is his first show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery.

Joel Nakamura "Bento Box"

In "Bento Box", Joel Nakamura deals with growing up Japanese American.

Nakamura is known for his unique style: a blend of folk art and sophisticated iconography rendered in a neo-primitive technique. He is chosen for many of his commissions for his knowledge of tribal art, mythology, and for his ability to convey stories and information in an intricate and engaging manner.

Jasmine Worth - "Sacred Feminine"

Jasmine Worth crafts scenes from fairytales gone awry, swirling seamlessly between the sweet and surreal, inevitably dipping into the valley of the morbid. In her latest series, "Scared Feminine", Worth, under the unifying theme of sacred femininity brings together aspects of Goddesses, saints, mythology and numerous other influences to fully explore the ever changing role of the feminine in spirituality. This series is intended to invite the viewer to explore their own relationship with the many aspects of the divine.

William Zdan "Humors"

Willian Zdan was raised in the manufacturing community of Detroit, and this has unquestionably influenced his world view. Classic techniques and religious iconography are stripped of their cliché and given new provocation. His most recent series, Humors, examines the longstanding connections between medicine, secular art and social defiance. The Humors (the preponderance of body fluids, respective organs, earth elements and corresponding human temperaments) are found in each of the paintings, along with bloodletting tools, leeches and other (now debunked and marginalized) medical conventions (like phrenology).
