THE FOUR EVANGELISTS

From the panels depicting the four Gospel Writers, in the altar rails at Church of the Visitacion, San Francisco, California.
https://www.stefansalinas.com/publicworks/#/altarrails/

Originals: Gold leaf and acrylic on linen over poplar.

In order to frame the sacred space, an altar rail has been installed in this church. It is adorned with depictions of the four Gospel writers: Luke, Matthew, Mark and John.
Inspired by the vibrant stained glass windows, which feature San Franciscan architectural landmarks and bridges, these painted panels have the Gospel writers inhabiting the natural landscape of the Bay Area. We enter from the Pacific Ocean to Land’s End, then travel to Visitacion Valley, and finally to San Bruno Mountain where we exit to the Bay at Brisbane (a nod to Our Lady of Guadalupe Mission).
As the Holy Spirit in the icon over the holy oils is a white dove in silhouette, as if it is a porthole from our realm to the light of the heavens, so these “messages” brought to us via the four Gospel writers seem to pierce through the curtain of the visible world. Silhouettes of deep blue = the Great Mystery; the Cosmos, God above and beyond our perception and understanding…
The Holy Spirit electrifies and invigorates the environment, and so the Technicolor techniques of the Post-Impressionists and Fauvist painters have been employed (also in line with the lively, colorful forms in the windows).
The skies in traditional iconography are usually gold, but are occasionally red when referencing the Resurrection (the cornerstone of our faith) and Pentecost (the birth of the Church). In icons, red occassionally is a substitute for the sun; gold. Water, long the symbol of Spirituality and of baptism, is a bright blue, alluding to Mary.

The sole man-made structure depicted in the paintings is the original Visitacion church building, and on that same panel is that “altar rock” in the foreground.

And we must not forget about the fog! White like the vestments on high holy days. It covers portions of the setting – a screen between this world and the Greater Unknown? The Great Veil had lifted..

In1777, a party of Spanish soldiers and Franciscan friars traveling north to the Presidio in San Francisco became lost in a heavy fog and determined to camp overnight. They awoke the next morning to find a beautiful valley beneath their gaze. They named their discovery Visitacion Valley, as the date was July 2, the Feast day of the Visitacion. According to lore, before continuing their journey the priests offered a mass, using a large rock as their altar. *
