On the surface, Colorado Springs Artist and Orthodox monk Luke Shaffer would seem to be the embodiment of spiritual contradiction. On the one hand, he’s a bona fide tonsured monk in the Orthodox tradition. On the other hand, he’s a child of American pop culture who continues to draw and paint the rock ‘n’ roll icons of his youth alongside the monks and icons of his faith.
In this first installment of a two-part audio slide show, Shaffer talks about the paintings and drawings of the pop-cultural idols who continue to influence him.
In the second installment tomorrow we’ll look at his other works, which include philosophers, monks and religious icons, some of which grace the narthex of Holy Theophany Orthodox Church here in Colorado Springs.
Shaffer’s work will appear at the Rubbish Gallery from January 8 – 29.
