One Painter’s Perspective on the Illuminations of The Saint John’s Bible
Presenter: Suzanne Moore
Date: Sunday, March 30
Time: 9:15-10:15 am
Location: Great Hall
One of only two American artists chosen to create illuminations for The Saint John’s Bible, Vashon Island resident Suzanne Moore worked on this “Bible for the 21st century” over a span of 10 years, beginning in 2001. Challenged by creative director Donald Jackson to develop images unlike any seen before, Moore worked closely with the Committee on Illumination and Text at Saint John’s Abbey and University to develop original illuminations of extraordinary beauty and power. Moore’s presentation will offer insights into the approach, creative process and techniques she used as a contributor to this modern-day Bible.
