Regent’s Dal Schindell Gallery is proud to present Under the Sun: Types and Shadows in a Biblical and Brazilian Perspective, an exhibit of original linocut prints as part of the IPIAT presentation by Regent student Davi Rabelo.

The show is a visual exploration that draws on biblical types and shadows to express some of the hopes and sorrows of life under the sun. Rooted in Scriptures and Brazilian culture, it is a personal journey of a pastor, graphic designer, and visual artist making sense of reality while grappling with the possibilities and tensions of the Gospel and his own culture. By exploring typology and typography, this exhibit brings together word and image in a universe that is rich, complex, and that recognizes the brokenness of this world. Images of Brazilian landscapes, with its tropical climate and typical fauna and flora, merge with biblical metaphors for creation, fall, and redemption. They are meant to express how the ordinary is met by the sacred, and the temporal infused with the eternal in light of Christ’s work. The contrasts in the themes are depicted through the choice of few contrasting colours: primarily black, white, and gold. Made entirely of linocuts, a relief-printing process, the images are carved out and printed all by hand creating unique visual pieces.
