Gozitan artist Aaron Formosa will be holding a Sacred Art exhibiton “Twilights” at the Banca Giuratale, Independence Square, Victoria Gozo.  This is his fifth personal exhibition.  It will be officially inaugurated on the 2nd of April 2020.  The exhibition will remain open up till the 19th of the month.  The main theme behind the exhibition is human existence in the light of Christ – the spiritual light which enlightens the human condition and makes it meaningful. Through this collection the artist intends to offer a new conception of sacred art; a personal interpretation of Biblical and religious narratives – an interpretation somewhat different from those with which we are normally acquainted in our local churches.  In the collection one finds paintings depicting the Nativity of Christ, Christ raising the daughter of Jairus from the dead, the Last Supper and the Supper at Emmaus and other themes relating to the Passion of our Lord; Marian themes like the Marriage of the Virgin, Mary’s Assumption into Heaven, the death of the Virgin; and others like the Call of Karmni Grima.
