Modern painting reached its highest point with Jackson Pollock. Maybe Marc Rothko if you would prefer. Anyway, the American Abstract Expressionist Painters of the late 1940’s and early 1950’s brought the modernist project to its logical conclusion.
What was that project? And what was the motivation for it? Well there are generally two answers. The first is found in the writings of Clement Greenberg. He argued that each art form should work within the essential vales of its…Continue

Dear Fellow Iconographers:
“Advent asks us to keep vigil for the Christ who comes to us anew in this season. It invites us to keep our face turned toward the horizon in hope. But Advent asks us also to open our hearts to the Christ who keeps vigil for us, the Christ who stands not on some distant horizon but, instead, is already with us, waiting for us to open our eyes to his presence that stays with us always.
As Advent begins, may you be blessed in your vigil: the one you…Continue

Rembrandt recognized the inseparable and intrinsic relationship between art and the artist. He saw the inseparable nature of the thing created from its creator, in this case the artist. Rembrandt said; “Painting is the grandchild of nature, it is related to God.”
Artists cannot escape being so attached to our work, in that our art is akin to our DNA being…Continue

Secara historis Indonesia memiliki pengalaman yang panjang tentang hal-hal yang berkaitan dengan senirupa dan…Continue

Dalam sejarah panjang peradaban yang berkembang di wilayah yang kemudian menyebut dirinya Indonesia sekarang ini, kekristenan merupakan bagian yang relatif masih muda. walaupun beberapa data menyebutkan bahwa kekristenan sudah nampak di beberapa tempat sebelum abad ke-10, namun secara umum orang bersepakat bahwa kekristenan masuk dan berkembang di Nusantara sekitar abad ke-15.
Karena usianya yang relatif muda, maka produk kebudayaan yang dihasilkannya pun belum banyak. Umumnya…Continue

Here is my humble attempt to portray the Trinity as "The Author of Creation". Three halos are present: one on the Father's arm, one behind the head of the Son, and one on the top of the pen representing the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Jesus wears a wedding band foreshadowing his role as groom to the church, the "bride of Christ". The open box represents the open system of Christian theism illustrating God moving outside and inside of time and space versus the…Continue

When Jesus was walking around the Mediterranean landscape the social conditions were not all that different than today. Societies struggled with changing family and gender roles, sexual controversy, local resistance to unprecedented political power; tyranny and prejudice were rampant. Christianity was a budding cult, unifying varied beliefs and behaviors under one theology of shared love. I am talking about 100 to 400 AD, before the church became…Continue
My name is Froyle Neideck, I am a professional visual artist and I have been painting and exhibiting for the past twenty years, in-between raising my family and pursing life. I want to tell you a story about hope, colour and great possibilities.
Last year my cousin Evana went through the horrific ordeal of breast cancer. She had a double mastectomy and all the treatment that aligns with this procedure. My mum, Helen, decided to head over to Perth, Western Australia, to help Evana’s…Continue
Valentin my dear husband called to me to come down and see what he found tucked in to the side of the mountain. It was a small little church, or shall I say, what was left of it. It had only two walls standing and no roof but there in front of me was a faded holy of holies exposed to Gods abundant air and sky. The holy of holies is the place the…Continue

I was inspired by an eight year old boy named Luke. I was about to take his First Communion portrait when he offered an idea for a pose. When I asked him why? He exclaimed, “this is how I’m going to be for my ordination.” He went on to show me where he saw the Greek letters for Jesus in one of my prints. He also saw butterflies, fireflies and other things, not out of the ordinary for a boy of his age to see. I woke up the next morning…Continue
