Testing the laws of attraction and connection, Cynthia Hibbard’s Joshua and Jesus hunts for a nexus between the geologic and botanical wonders of Joshua Tree National Park and the magnetism of baby Jesus imagery within 13th-15th-century, Florentine Madonna and child paintings.
Through various media including etching, painting, woodcut, mosaic, installation and collage, Hibbard draws parallels between godly landscape and a divine visage.
