Saint Louis University’s Museum of Contemporary Religious Art (MOCRA) presents "Adrian Kellard: The Learned Art of Compassion," a selection of work by American artist Adrian Kellard (1959­91). Although a professionally trained artist, Kellard incorporated “high” art with “low” art, combining images quoted from artists such as Giotto and Michelangelo with images from pop culture. Working in the stylistic tradition of German Expressionism, Kellard demonstrated expertise with wood carving by creating bold images of Christ, Mary, and Christian saints in contemporary contexts, for which an X-ACTO knife was his principal tool and household paint on pine panels were his media.
