An interactive session with Fr Andy Bullen SJ exploring the interplay of contemporary art with the art of the past.
Fr Andrew Bullen SJ is the Parish Priest of the parishes of Our Lady of the Way, North Sydney/Lavender Bay-Kirribilli in Sydney. He joined the Society of Jesus in 1967 and while undertaking his Jesuit training, he finished a degree in Arts at Monash University, Melbourne and then undertook an MA that focussed on religious poetry in Australia. During this period he began teaching both English and Religious Education. He has been a teacher, rector, Socius to the Provincial and editor of ‘Madonna’ magazine. In addition to his interest in literature and his occasional writing including poetry, Andy has a long time interest in the visual arts. He has an abiding interest in attending to what is happening in our culture and considering its significance for presenting the gospel today. Over the years he has developed various ways of using art to engage people with the gospel and Ignatian spirituality. In 2010 he was one of the three judges for the Blake Prize for Religious Art.
