Painting title: Nearer My God to Thee (Self Portrait, 1979), 35 x 35”, oil on canvas
In this exhibitionGregory Wilhelmi explores a world of spirituality obscured, faith smudged, and the struggle to walk again in light.
“My father, Catholic gone missing in the density of decades,
stands up to the ambulatory with a prayer bulletin
and stubs of charcoal.
As a boy he misunderstood the sin
of smuggling crayons into church,
little wax martyrs in his shirt pocket
conserved the chest cavity’s tender vessels.
He is binding a sketchbook
saving up for a modest tin of pencils.
He wants to be ready
in case he has something holy to say.”
(Excerpts from “Cathedral” by Juliet Wilhelmi, 2011)
