The Christian Faith (and other traditional family values)
Faith and doubt collide in Zane Bjorge’s collection of graphite drawings this week in the
LaVerne Krause Gallery. The graphic, wide-eyed alter ego of the artist looks out with a hollow
gaze, inviting the viewer into a shared confrontation with religious anxiety, reverence, and
uncertainty, while smaller adjacent vignettes illustrate the day-to-day growing pains of a young
adult in training. In contrast, also included in this exhibition are a series of drawings created
with a simple set of stencils, layered and traced to compose confronting scenes of political
upheaval, societal violence, and gratuitous sexuality. Despite being drastically different
stylistically, these two bodies of work speak to each other through their differences, and work
to paint a better picture of religion and societal strains in an America divided.
“I Am who I Am.”
- Exodus 3:14
