Spiritual Sundays: Christ in Art


As an artist myself, I believe wholly in the spiritual connection of art with its creator and those viewing it. No other medium allows such freedom of expression with no real limits and allows the viewer to interpret the art on a purely spiritual level. Art speaks to people. It tells a story, it has a message, and it expresses emotion, it is personal and interpretive. No wonder there have been so many depictions of Christ throughout the centuries, his message resonates with all times and cultures.

My favorite aspect of biblical art is the fact that regardless of how Christ is depicted in a piece of art you can always tell it is Christ. This is because through the artist and the viewer the Holy Spirit works to testify of Christ. It's truly miraculous.

Don't believe me? Look:

His Birth
Misc Works of Art on Christ 
800 Images of Christ
Depictions of Christ

Wouldn't it be good to see Christ in every face
In that His great morality serving the human race
And all species when and where we possibly can'e
As we are all suffering needlessly with refrain.

It is true that I cry sumtimes over the humble worm and mole who are under ground so much wih little or no Son, and sometimes they are hit with a spade for just being them and dug up to be put in aa terrifying environment of greedy fish! So much suffering if you have a keen eye to see. We all share life and should appreciate each other when and where possible. Good bless you and your sweet character. Thank you. Take wonderful care. Love Andrew. Bye.
