Rene Girard and the Catholic Artist: an exhibition

Runs through Thursday, February 28, 2019


Exibition by Alfonse Borysewicz is located in Fromm Hall, directly behind St. Ignatius Church on the USF campus in San Francisco, CA.

Paintings are located opposite the right-most entrances to Xavier.

Brooklyn painter, Alfonse Borysewicz, is who America magazine called a "serious artist" one of "the few artists" who have the courage to bridge the gap between Catholicism and the art world. Image magazine called him one of the most important religious artists since the French Catholic expressionist, Georges Henri Rouault.  How do we reconcile modernism and the sacred?  Aflonse has been influenced by Stanford Catholic theologian and French literature professor, Rene Girard, on this question.
