Contemporary religious painter Norbert Kox is one of America's most important Visionary artists. Born in Green Bay, Wisconsin on the same day in 1945 that the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, Kox's self-described "apocalyptic visual parables" utilize powerful symbolic metaphors to awaken modern man from his spiritual malaise and counter centuries worth of Biblical mistranslations. Since Norbert Kox's last exhibit at La Luz de Jesus, he's managed to get his work banned by every major religious group in the U. S. He has secluded himself on a remote island, devoting his time to his work. This exhibit will introduce Norbert's new image revealing process called "spontaneous symmetrical surrealism". It is a spontaneous process in which the pictures reveal themselves. They already exist and through a process of exploration Kox discovers a key to open the portal to these magnificent visual displays, which are present all around us every day. Our natural eyes do not allow us to see them but nonetheless they are right in front of us at all times. The intricate, sometimes very complex designs and patterns are reflections and enhancements of nature itself. God's inkblot, if you please.
