Of the eight collectible works of art by Aberjhani published exclusively in the 2022 anniversary edition of the Flannery O’Connor Review, two have been made available for purchase in different print formats on the artist’s Fine Art America.com profile and his Pixels.com website.
The available prints include: the cover image fine art digital painting titled Sermon in the Valley of Broken Angels, and the fine art digital photo-painting called: View of the Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist from the 15th Floor of DeSoto Hotel in Savannah, GA, June 18, 2021.
“I went with these particular prints,” said Aberjhani, “because of responses to them from people who have the 2022 Flannery O’Connor Review. I don’t oppose auctioning off limited numbers of original prints, but in this case I wanted to make a couple of popular images accessible to as many people as possible at affordable prices and in different gift formats.”
List of Artworks
The 2022 FLOC Review (published by Georgia College in Milledgeville, Ga. USA) contains a full 8-page section which includes a profile of the artist, poetry by him, and the previously noted artwork. Most of the artwork is in the Silk-Featherbrush Artstyle created by the artist-author. In addition to the images already named, others are as follows:
“Some of the titles are direct references to books or stories by O’Connor,” said Aberjhani. “The collection of art published in the review as a whole is meant to serve as part of my multi-media commentaries on the author’s life and writings. The visual part of those commentaries began with the Flannery O’Connor and Converging Grace collection.”
What is not included in the collection or the review is the artwork used for the cover of his book, Greeting Flannery O’Connor at the Back Door of My Mind, as well as several images reserved for possible exhibits. However, in addition to his artwork, the special edition includes a corresponding poem by the artist titled “History and Prophets’ Prerogatives,” which until now has only been available as part of a limited set of fine art poster prints.
