Artist Moe Profane is a self-described recovering Catholic, cancer survivor and heart disease patient. Building on the idea that “nothing is sacred because nothing is absolute,” Profane’s art is filled with forthright candor. That’s plainly seen in his work in the exhibit “Moe Profane: Nihilism and Nanner Puddin.” Profane, who was selected as San Antonio’s Raw Artist of the Year in 2012, has a finely honed sense of humor and a keen sense of irony. He manages through layering and artistry to add the impression of age to signboards, and sometimes to illustrations on used white picket fences. The works shown include Relativist Pop Art Icons and Shrines to the Mundane.
