Might to Save, a solo exhibition by Ryan Dyck

June 4 - June 30

Free

AANM is proud to present, Might to Save a solo exhibition by Ryan Dyck. Mighty to Save is a series of portraits exploring the hero as subject. The body of work explores themes of power and rescue. Six Marvel superheroes including Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Captain America portray action, strength and presence. Superheroes are known to save the day. But none compare to the ultimate and original hero and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He saves lives and souls now and into the afterlife through His sacrifice on the cross. Jesus can perform miracles that surpass the abilities of heroes, real or imagined. This juxtaposition is further accentuated by canvas size. For this series, the bigger the size, the bigger the hero.

Poster Description: On the left side of the poster is the AANM logo at the top with the following text in black with the title in red: “Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba is proud to present MIGHTY TO SAVE a solo exhibition by Ryan Dyck. Mighty to Save is a series of portraits exploring the hero as subject. The body of work explores themes of power and rescue. Superheroes are known to save the day. But none compare to the ultimate and original hero and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Jesus can perform miracles that surpass the abilities of heroes, real or imagined”. On the right side of the poster is a close up of a painting of Jesus on the cross. Jesus is well muscled in this depiction and has cuts with blood on his shoulders and head. Superimposed over the image at the bottom is the following text in white against a dark brown background: “Opening online on June 4, 2021 www.aanm.ca/online-exhibitions”
