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.

Author Biography

Jim Kalnin has been interested in art and the natural world his whole life. Experiencing a variety of cultures has deepened his compassion for the world's people and our utter dependence on the land -- not only as our means of survival but also as the revealer of Mystery. Jim teaches Fine Arts at UBC Okanagan and continues to be a prolific artist working with conventional art materials in unconventional ways and with a limitless range of natural and found materials. His art is shown regularly in local, regional, and touring exhibitions. Lois Huey-Heck is a spiritual director, retreat leader/group facilitator, author and visual artist. For over twenty years her day job (spiritual publishing) also connected her to matters of spirituality and the practical concerns of putting values/beliefs into action. She has an abiding belief in the inherent sacredness of the body and all creation. The symbiotic relationship between sexuality and spirituality remains a favourite subject in her art, writing and research.
