"The Hand Acts Out a Joyous Dance"
Celebrating the Art of Bernard Maisner
Release date: May 29, 2017
A master calligrapher and manuscript illuminator, artist Bernard Maisner brings together materials and design in unexpected ways. From tiny illuminated manuscripts to large-scale paintings reminiscent of ancient mosaics, he achieves a vibrant compositional and scribal expression rooted in the past but conveyed with a fresh contemporary visual vocabulary.
In this program, presented on April 2, 2017, and coinciding with the closing day of the exhibition Bernard Maisner: The Hourglass and the Spiral, Maisner reflected on his work, discussing his sources, techniques, and inspirations. He was joined by Susan L'Engle, a noted scholar of medieval manuscripts, and Ken Botnick, a highly regarded printer, publisher and book maker. MOCRA Director Terrence Dempsey, SJ, moderated the conversation.
They were joined by special guest Helen Du Bois. Together with her late husband, Peter, she has been a major collector of Maisner’s work. Six large-scale Maisner paintings, donated by Helen in honor of Peter, formed the centerpiece of The Hourglass and the Spiral.
