Art is undoubtedly a symbolic representation of people’s thoughts, beliefs, and values. The term “medium,” often used to describe various types of materials used in creating a piece of art, suggests that it exists as a midway point between the artist’s mind Self-realization and meditation (yoga for the mind) - Peter Cajander allowed us to publish this part from his book Fragments of Reality. It talks about life from a personal perspective covering areas ranging from self-realization, meditation, stress, happiness, death, and everyday living. Peter is a writer, philosophical thinker, entrepreneur, strategy consultant, business executive, and author to name a few titles. He has been… and the audience.

Not only does the artwork itself help us understand the artist An Artist Portrait (Part One) - This is a fantastic article written exclusively for my Weblog by Frank V. Cahoj. Please feel free to comment here or send him emails. He'll be happy of this. An Artist Portrait (Part One) My name is Frank Cahoj and I have been an artist since I was born. I can say this in confidence without… or sculptor who created it, but the very medium through which artists choose to work can reveal something about them. Art, then, is a method of communication, full of symbolism, between an artist and the public.

In no other category of art is this symbolism more prominent than in religious art. For many, religion is a deeply held belief system that evokes powerful emotional and spiritual responses.

To elicit these emotions Artists Psychology - Here's an interesting exclusive article Roland d’Humières, 56 years old psycho-analyst from Aix en Provence (France) has written for our Weblog. I think it to be a very interesting writing about the artists psychology, or maybe "arts psychology", what's behind an artists mind. Artists Psychology Whatever is his/her Art, painting, music, dance, writing, or any… in the public, an artist must be skilled and adept in working with their chosen medium. An understanding of religious iconography, or those images specifically related to a faith, is also crucial for an artist who wants to create a piece of religious art.

A true master of religious art can create a piece that represents values held by many. It is no small wonder, then, that art has been part of the Christian faith for several centuries.

Over the centuries, many artists have been commissioned by churches to paint or sculpt pieces to be placed in cathedrals and monasteries. Art and religion are very much intertwined.

Today, images of Jesus Christ, the Apostles, and various Bible stories are still commonplace in many places of worship. These images provide a focal point for worshippers all around the modern Christian world.

As people of the Christian faith read the Bible, the stories become part of them. An artist who can create an image of one of these stories that includes the relevant, essential elements of the story will connect most fully with their audience.

These pieces, those that speak most completely to the public, become well-known. Michelangelo will be forever remembered for his work on the Sistine Chapel.

Other masters of painting Painting: A Spiritual Pathway to the Divine - In a world increasingly driven by technology and fast-paced living, the art of painting provides an oasis of calm and introspection. It allows both the artist and the observer to delve deep into a realm often considered transcendental. For many, painting serves as a bridge to the divine, a medium through which spirituality is explored… and sculpting are working today, creating pieces of religious art that will undoubtedly be praised by future generations of worshippers and others. Religion is very persistent among humans, and it carries with it, through the ages, the imagery related to it.

Perhaps more importantly, though, is the meaning of the piece to the artist or sculptor. This individual must have deeply held beliefs themselves, as they have a desire to share them with others.

While art is meant to be seen, religious art is also meant to be a gift to God. Many Christians hold the belief that talent in any area is God-given.

Artists who believe in this feel a responsibility to pay homage to the one who gave them their abilities and their faith. Their art becomes a physical manifestation of their love for God.

The imagery and iconography an artist chooses to use in a piece has a specific meaning for them, as well as being meaningful to many others who share the artist’s faith. The way they choose to depict Jesus Christ or a Bible story speaks to why Christ or the story is important in their life An Artist Portrait (Part Two) - This is the Part Two (and final part) of the true life story as artist written by Frank V. Cahoj for our Weblog. (Part One) An Artist Portrait (Part Two) I give an unbelievable amount of credence to these two early periods in my life: one of everlasting creation, one of analysis and disillusionment. The… .

An image of Christ rising from the tomb would imply that the artist holds that aspect of Christ’s life to be significant since they have chosen to represent it. Additionally, that image would mean that the creator of the image also has hope in the Resurrection.

An image of the Battle of Jericho would be recognized by many as an essential Bible story. To the artist, though, it may be a commemoration of a time in their life when God helped them do something that seemed impossible, just as He helped the Israelites.

Because art is such a symbolic form of communication between people, the meanings that can be extrapolated from it are numerous. This is why it is so widely used in religion.

The creator of the piece gives it their own meaning.
