Begat Art Exhibit Opening

January 28, 2023

Begat will be several images of ancient Christian scripture with most of the words crossed out, leaving only a few scattered words to read for a meaning not originally intended. These images are part of a book by the same name. Artist Warren Hicks described the book as “Welcome to the mind-scratching, head-bending, ball-banging world of BEGAT! Finally, a book that belongs on your coffee table and/or in your bathroom, and vice versa. It even fits easily inside ANY pocket, that’s properly sized. It’s just that versatile! Bloated with hilaresy (heresy that’s really, really funny), Begat is an art book lovingly jammed inside a book about the same book. What book? Hicks surgically removed all references to religion from the Gospel of Matthew (New Testament) to reveal a world filled with elves, cannibalism, pubs, meth, raves, pot fields, country music, a starship, explosions, etc
