Some wage war in the name of God. All fight with the belief that God is on their side. Phyllis Plattner's art is a painted meditation, appropriating images of war and religion from art history and photojournalism to contrast the opposing drives of violence and peace. This solo-exhibition features monumental, highly narrative altarpieces from Plattner's Legends and Chronicles of War series.
The rescheduled Gallery Talk with Phyllis Plattner will take place on Saturday, February 28, 4 pm in the AU Museum, first floor.
