Amazing Grace: Contemporary Chinese Christian Art

Volume 16, Number 1, January/February 2017
by Patricia Eichenbaum Karetzky

Article Description

Patricia Karetzky takes us into territory Yishu has not yet explored: the introduction of Christianity into mainland Chinese society, and, more provocatively, into the work of Chinese artists. The approach of these artists, however, is not one of promoting the tenets of Christianity but of exploring it in more personal and discreet ways.
