Jesus in Love
I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people. For unto you
is born this day in the city of David
a Savior, which is Christ.
-- Luke 2:10-11
Chist is born in a way that liberates people from limitations of gender, race and sexual orientation in the minimalist “Color Nativity” by British artist Sebastian Bergne.
The plain wooden blocks evoke the essence of the holy scene simply through color, shape and placement.
While many queer Nativity scenes have been presented at the Jesus in Love Blog, the Color Nativity empowers viewers to discern for themselves whether any LGBTQ people were present at the manger scene… or whether the baby Jesus may have been born queer.
Kittredge Cherry and Jesus in Love wish you a most merry Christmas and much happiness throughout the New Year. Make the Yuletide gay and enjoy all the midwinter holidays!
Sebastian Bergne’s art has been widely recognized with international design awards, frequent publications, exhibitions and inclusion in museum collections such as The Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the Design Museum (London).
