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.
