The concept of the crossroads is fundamental to the work in our latest exhibition, Church of the Crossroads. Renée Stout utilizes her skills as a photo-realist painter to imbue her mixed-media works and installations with socio-historical critiques, vodou imagery, and elements of Yoruba, Creole and African-American culture. In a uniquely informed voice, Stout masterfully blends Old World traditions with contemporary and personal issues to create profound statements on the often tense intersection between society, theology, and political forces.
