Rev. Howard Finster Desert Storm War Is Over Original Painting On Wood For Sale

Rev. Howard Finster Desert Storm War Is Over Original Painting On Wood

This is a wonderful example of the work of famous artist, Howard Finster. "Desert Storm War Is Over" is signed on the front "By Howard Finster A Witness Of Jesus Christ The Savior Of All Mar-7-1991 As Time Goes By 1:56 Past Midnight 18,000-289 Work Since 1976 Desert Storm War Is Over". The painting is his words of prayer and warnings on a cut out 1/4" plywood measuring 15 1/2" X 17 1/2". It is also signed on the back with an added "God Bless", and a smiling sketch of "Devils Cat Hell Cat". My friend traveled to Georgia in 1993 in hopes of meeting Rev. Finster; better, she came home with his painting. This has had only the one owner and is in excellent condition. I will be happy to answer any questions and, of course, combine your shipping. About the artist:The Reverend Howard Finster was born in 1916 in Valley Head, Alabama and died in October of 2001 in Summerville, Georgia.Reverend Finster is one of the country's most talked about white, outsider artists. In 1965 he heard a voice from the Lord which told him to transform two acres of land into a "Paradise Garden." Using junk, broken dolls, tools and clocks he embedded these materials in concrete walls which surround a tower thirty feet high built of bicycle parts and his own church called "The World's Folk Art Church." "Paradise Garden" was an ongoing project expressing his religious conviction and creativity and he explains that he assembled the pieces for a purpose-"to mend a broken world." In 1976 he had a vision of a tall man at his gate in which the Lord directed him to begin painting "sermon art" because, "preaching don't do much good; no one listens- but a picture gets on a brain cell." The voice commanded him to paint this sacred art and to create individual paintings and portraits of personal heroes, religious and patriotic images and to pass on his spiritual messages to the world. FinsterÍs paintings have evangelical themes and inspirational images which come from his own interpretations of the bible. Angels and saints as well as earthly characters are portrayed. All of his paintings contain witty, printed quotations known as "Finsterisms." Several of his paintings show how he was influenced by the imagery on postcards or popular magazines. Some of his creations have joined the contemporary world through his paintings for the album covers of the rock groups REM and The Talking Heads. Finster made art out of nail heads, gourds, bottles, mirrors, plastic, snow shovels and even an old cadillac, however the majority of his works are usually made out of plywood or heavy canvas with the works ranging in size from a few square inches to 8-9 feet in height. His art is original, innovative and expressive. He believed he came from another world and was often referred to as "This Stranger From Another World." Finster believed that the more he painted, the more people he could save. The works are presented in many forms, sometimes called "paintings in tongue," visions of other worlds where people live in harmony. Finster had his visions for the future. "A day when one computer will run the earth and the final day when giant tidal waves will cover the world. And then the time will come for GOD to create men again- men like the Reverend Howard Finster."
