Dennis McNally, S.J., Ph.D.
Professor of Art
Office: Department of Art
New York born and bred, this painter has three degrees from New York schools and one from Weston Jesuit School of Theology. He studied for a year in Italy, an experience that has infused his work with Renaissance influences. His Jesuit training in the Spiritual Exercises puts the use of imagination in the attempt to connect with God at the very center of his prayer life; that, too, shows in his work. The theme of what God must think of the way we conduct our lives is often given great consideration in the images that come about from his own interior struggles with how this or that tragedy could possibly have been perpetrated. The paintings are a way to pray. With God's grace they will help others to pray.
