ART, FAITH & CREATIVITY
The Good Syrian | Joel Schoon-Tanis
FINE ART GICLEE PRINTS
When art is painted through eyes of faith
it can be a prophetic voice that points to truth.
Remember - Jesus was a Refugee
I hope this painting encourages people to ask the question, “Who is my neighbor?” Based on a composition by Vincent VanGogh, my painting re-examines the parable of the Good Samaritan and re-contextualizes its message into today’s tribal world.
In this case it is the “Good Syrian” who helps the distressed man with the Confederate flag tattoo, as the indifferent bystander walks off into the distance absorbed in their smart phone. I hope this painting will provide some insight into the question “Who is my neighbor?” in this complex global world we live in.
By purchasing and sharing a print of my painting you can help others open the conversation and explore this question while also supporting refugees in need.
