Sister Mary Corita Kent | Selected Works

In vibrant color and bold flat shapes, the silkscreen work of activist nun Sister Mary Corita in the 1950's and 1960's embodies the spirit of a woman who resisted the male dominated Bay Area Catholic Church, and the dehumanizing culture of global capitalism and consumerism.

Simultaneous and overlapping double meanings of psalms, religious thinking, billboards and wrappers were inherent in her word image oriented prints.  She was ultimately motivated to point toward a better way of being a human being--as succinctly exemplified by her use of the magazine icons to call to us to LOOK at LIFE all the TIME.
