The Call by Jorge Cocco
About this Image:
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his across daily, and follow me. - Luke 9:23
"Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him." -Mark 1:16-18 This painting won the purchase award at the Church Museum's international competition in 2015, and it was the first painting I did in the new sacrocubism style.
About the Artist:
JORGE COCCO SANTANGELO is a prolific artist born in Argentina. He also lived in Europe and Mexico for many years and now resides in the US. His award-winning paintings and sculptures have been exhibited and acquired around the world by museums, churches, governments and important private collectors. Cocco calls his new style of painting "sacrocubism" because of the sacred subject matter he paints and because he uses some elements of the art movement known as "cubism". Cocco's style appeals to the spiritual intellect by synthesizing objects to simple, geometric shapes allowing the observers to center their attention on the essential and most holy. Rather than painting with a photographic or journalistic mind, this abstraction allows Cocco to better express emotions, feelings, and the transcendence of the events depicted.
