On occasion, momentary experiences produce some of the most profound sources of creative inspiration. Such was the case for artist Sandra Filippucci when she came face-to-face with the complex and mysterious life of a warrior saint.
It was 27 years ago that Sandra Filippucci “met” Joan of Arc in a tiny chapel in Normandy, France, and it was that brief moment that led Filippucci to create a “3D ‘Perpetual Muse’ combined with traditional techniques,” as Evoke Contemporary reports. On view now through the end of the month, “Joan of Arc: Voices of Light” is a compelling solo exhibition of works from artist Sandra Filippucci. The exhibition, curated by Linda Durham, is named after Richard Einhorn’s masterpiece oratorio “Voices of Light,” inspired by the 1928 film “The Passion of Joan of Arc.”
Via the gallery release: “Who was Joan of Arc? What did she look like? Even with an impossible time machine, one would need a broad, insightful humanity—and an intuitive historical imagination—to unwrap the mystery and mysticism of this iconic heroine. Sandra Filippucci’s powerfully realized works reveal an inspired, masterful, personal interpretation of a subject she knows well and has engaged for decades.”
