Grain Storage Warehouse: Saint Ignatius Cathedral, Shanghai, China is an impasto oil painting by Dave Alber, Travel Artist.
Oil on canvas
11.8 x 31.5 in (30 x 80 cm)
“During the revolution, the cathedral was used as a grain storage warehouse. There is cruel irony here in the symbol of the Eucharist being a wafer of grain. Additionally, the painting has a propulsive use of sacred geometry amongst its other references to the Western tradition.”
Dave exhibited this painting in the in the 2019 exhibition Ravages of Time & Permanence of Wonder at Suzhou Arts Collective in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China.
