Item description for The Spirituality of Art (Spirituality Of) by Jim Kalnin & Lois Huey-Heck...

Overview
Centuries ago a common visual language was shared. The meaning of symbols, colors, and patterns was understood by our largely pre-literate population and much of the art was religious and spiritual. Back then people knew how to "read" the language of the visual. Over time the written word replaced visuals as the primary communicator. In the transition familiarity was lost, and then comfort, with the rich world of images. Consequently, many of us have an uneasy relationship with art--"especially "new" art.

Publishers Description
Centuries ago we shared a common visual language. The meaning of symbols, colors and patterns was understood by our largely pre-literate population and much of the art was religious and spiritual. Back then we knew how to "read" the language of the visual. Over time the written word replaced visuals as the primary communicator. In the transition we lost familiarity, and then comfort, with the rich world of images. Consequently, many of us have an uneasy relationship with art - especially "new" art. We like some of it but a lot of it seems confusing, fantastical, or even downright ugly. Why would someone want to paint atrocities, or make pictures that are so chaotic? Why would someone else sculpt beauty or paint challenge? The Spirituality of Art is an invitation to engage these and similar questions. Through stories, quotes and thoughts it's a guide to deeper enjoyment and appreciation of visual art, the spiritual journey and the connections between the two. This is also a celebration of the richness of art in forms as diverse as cave art, traditional painting, photography, print-making and found-object installation.
