Religious Art ?
Your thoughts on religious art. Beautiful? worth it? not worth it? Disturbing?

RE: Religious Art ?
I appreciate almost all art. I've never been a fan of cubism but other than that I pretty much can find something fascinating in most artworks - religious or not. Probably because I can appreciate where it comes from - even Christian mode. Not being a life-long atheist gives me that outlook, I'd imagine.

It's a good question tho. Thumbsup

RE: Religious Art ?
I once was in an art museum looking at a 16th century painting depicting Jesus on a cross. It was remarkably bloody.
Then the curator started talking to me about creationism....
At the time I did not even know much about creationism, because this was in Europe and creationism isnot as popular
there.

Art is art the subject maters not it is the expression.

No so the subject is the conduit for expression. No one simply makes art for pretty pictures.

As someone who paints regularly I can tell you that no I don't. Most paintings are for emotional relief.

Maybe make your OP a bit more clear next time? Thumbsup It's almost like you're asking questions in order to draw out an argument(?) Don't set people up for failure. Just mean what you say and say what you mean. Then we can better answer you.

cheers
