Ecce Homo (Behold a Man), a solo exhibition by Rahn Marion will hang in the Mitchell gallery. Rahn Marion is a painter, liturgical artist, sculptor, and installation designer. Rahn’s work reimagines ancient stories and mythologies through the black male figure, drawing references from visionary art traditions, medieval composition, and folklore.
Rahn Marion has this to say about Ecce Homo (Behold a Man);
“Ecce Homo" [...]reclaims ideas of spirituality and salvation within black masculinity. [the] work features religious iconography, architecture and tapestry, juxtaposed with sensual queer figures. [the] work challenges notions of orthodoxy by placing Black queer men as the central figures in Eurocentric Christian narratives. The paintings combine bold colors with traditional muted tones to blend contemporary and historical techniques. Through [...] surreal but corporeal paintings [Ecce Homo] creates a new pantheon of queer icons.
