As in <i>Jesus at the Festival of Shelters</i>, it depicts an area in Philadelphia around 8th and Vine streets that is under construction. Early in his painting career, Bartlett executed a number of large-scale paintings devoted to the working-class man that stand as an homage to his common, essential, but often overlooked role in society. Here the strength in the composition comes from the forceful triangle formed by the African American workers, rather than from their white supervisor who bends down on the left. The title reinforces the notion of a monumental and important subject, though one with ambiguous overtones of destruction as well as renewal. One of the earliest sketches for this painting suggests something more somber: the workers are lifting, apparently exhuming, a body from the excavation. The painted and actual blood (accidentally spattered from a cut on the artist’s hand) on the bottom of the supervisor’s pants leaves a provocative and enigmatic symbol. Another small detail is in a lighter vein: the very tip of the supervisor’s pointing finger is reflected in the puddle beside him. <b>About <i>Triptych</i>:</b> Three paintings by American artist Bo Bartlett, though created separately, were installed in the lobby of Olney Hall in fall 1989 as a three-part installation: <i>Triptych,</i> and still hang there today. Born in Columbus, Georgia, Bartlett studied Old Master paintings in Florence, Italy before moving to Philadelphia in 1976. As a student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts he received numerous awards and was taught and inspired by Philadelphia artists Sidney Goodman, Arthur DeCosta, and Morris Blackburn. He later apprenticed under the notable realist painter Nelson Shanks, and followed an anatomy class at The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Bartlett’s work recalls American realist traditions, as defined by artists such as Thomas Eakins and Andrew Wyeth. The familiar subjects of home, family, and friends prevail in his dreamlike, hyper-realist canvases. The commonplace is raised to epic prominence as his monumental paintings subtly blend biblical, political, or social themes and imagery within contemporary settings. The viewer becomes intrigued, almost haunted, by Bartlett’s figures and symbolic situations which suggest tension, vulnerability, and the complexity and mystery of the human soul. The narrative content is often enigmatic, and Bartlett’s works may be interpreted in numerous ways. Barlett’s work expresses his strong commitment to social justice, community engagement, and the transformative power of art. These paintings are well placed within our University, as an institution of higher education that seeks to impart secular knowledge and social involvement in an atmosphere that celebrates spiritual values.

Here the artist interprets the biblical story in contemporary terms, including painted portraits of St. Luke’s former pastor, the Reverend Clifford Cutler, and several parishioners. As in <i>Cratermen</i>, the background depicts an area in Philadelphia around Eighth and Vine Streets, with the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral and the steeple of St. Michael’s Church (where La Salle College commenced in 1863). The figure of Christ, who stands on a mound of earth on the far right, is presented as an African American man, a modern rabbi, wearing a Roman clerical collar. This rendering suggests the unity of our diverse humanity. The tents in the background refer to the shelters erected in the desert at the time of the Jews’ exodus from Egypt, while the telephone poles evoke the cross. As in the biblical story of Jesus in the Temple, the people in the crowd here have varied reactions. Some are oblivious to Christ’s presence; others are doubtful; and a few already believe and commit themselves. Despite its complexity, the dynamic grouping of people is directed towards the elevated figure of Christ, isolated against a wide expanse of sky. He preaches amid a scene of industrial destruction, hopefully soon to be followed by renewal. The inclusion of a construction worker by the pool of water in the foreground (a self-portrait of the artist) refers to the words spoken by Christ in St. John’s Gospel (VII: 37-38), “If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” <b>About <i>Triptych</i>:</b> Three paintings by American artist Bo Bartlett, though created separately, were installed in the lobby of Olney Hall in fall 1989 as a three-part installation: <i>Triptych,</i> and still hang there today.

The central theme of this painting seems to be the search or journey for secular and spiritual knowledge undertaken by youth, especially during their college years. The successive stages of this journey are referred to by the various poses and expressions of the figures as they move up the hill in a rhythmical swing upwards from the lower right corner: from the bewildered toddler and youths at the bottom; to the young man standing at the top center, who seems captivated or inspired; and finally to the woman in red on the far right, with the glow of light above her head, who has reached the end of her journey toward wisdom. The four older men on the side of the hill serve as the teachers and guides along the journey. The message is one of hope, wonderment, and spiritual renewal for persons of all faiths. This painting was commissioned by La Salle and subjects were gathered to provide a cross-section of the University community: Professors Claude Koch, Joseph F. Flubacher, and Brother Francis McCormick are grouped together on the left; retired counselor Rosa Lee Smith stands at the top of the hill in red; Dr. Joseph Kane, former Dean of the Business School, stands on the left side of the hill with arm pointing; students Rachel Ravasco and Dave Weems stand on the hill in the middle background. Other La Salle students, professors, and staff members portrayed in the far background include Frank McLaughlin, Joanie Hasson, Brother Mike Andrejko, Brother Arthur Bangs, Mary Morrow Farrell, and Ann Shields. The two central figures at the top of the hill and those in the foreground are friends of the artist; his son is in the lower right corner. The composition began with the artist posing and taking photographs of the figures on the lawn of the Peale House one spring day in April 1989. <b>About <i>Triptych</i>:</b> Three paintings by American artist Bo Bartlett, though created separately, were installed in the lobby of Olney Hall in fall 1989 as a three-part installation: <i>Triptych,</i> and still hang there today.
