The Book of Job in our Time: Prints by Linda Nesvisky

The Book of Job has inspired and challenged philosophers, theologians, playwrights, artists, and writers for generations. Whether the story is true or a parable, it raises one of life’s biggest existential questions—“why do the righteous suffer?”

Boils! Satan! Destruction! Fantastic descriptions of the universe! As an impressionable teen, award-winning printmaker Linda Nesvisky walked into this subject and never turned away. The forty prints on view in this exhibition reflect the artist’s fascination with this timeless theme in a combination of imagery and the written word.
