Theresa Coleman: A Christian Sense of Aesthetics

Theresa writes:

At the point that Art (in the larger sense) ceases to describe our experiences of God, I wonder what it describes?

I wonder if there is something inherent in the "being of a human" that always is searching for that spark of what we call divine -- that the search for beauty is the search for God, but disguised. Maybe it is in the searching for beauty and in the finding that we can re-discover the divine even in secular Art.

even though you are quoting Theresa here, I do appreciate your explications of art and faith. Should you get around to doing one on Durer that would be great.

Thanks, David! I did Durer back here.
