BOOK EXCERPT:

Is contemporary art a friend or foe of Christianity? Art historian, critic, and curator Daniel Siedell, addresses this question and presents a framework for interpreting art from a Christian worldview in God in the Gallery: A Christian Embrace of Modern Art. As such, it is an excellent companion to Francis Schaeffer's classic Art and the Bible. Divided into three parts--"Theology," "History," and "Practice"--God in the Gallery demonstrates that art is in conversation with and not opposed to the Christian faith. In addition, this book is beautifully enhanced with images from such artists as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Enrique Martínez Celaya, and others. Readers of this book will include professors, students, artists, and anyone interested in Christianity and culture.

BOOK EXCERPT:

It was the late doctor Frederick Nietzsche who said "I regard profound problems as I do a cold bath, quick in, quick out. That one thereby fails to get down deep enough, fails to reach the depth is the superstition of hydrophobias. Does a thing really remain unintelligible and unrecognized if it is touched, viewed, illumined simply in passing?" Deep simplicity is the style applied in this discourse and with that fashion, the reader can learn the profoundest truths about reality in the most concise and simplex manor. It is a bias of superficial people that the length of the size of a book has a mathematical ratio to its profoundness. There are those who fear books like the Bible simply because of its longevity. In opposition to that belief, there is more wisdom in the few pages of this small pamphlet than there is in thousands of lengthy books combined. This tiny manuscript is a well of wisdom, its bottom of space deep and it covers topics as wide as the ends of space. These collections of writings are a compendium of the author's philosophical notes. The book contains omissions and additions to other books. From government, to music to love, to life and death, so many subjects are examined. These discourses are fragments of ideas that came to me; the notes are glimpses of the author's thoughts. The book is a photo album of my life experiences. Words and sentences are mental photos, and a lyrical line is worth a thousand images. The maxims, parables, and aphorisms of this book can be thought of portraits of the writer's mental landscape. These are the atoms of my thoughts; they are the building blocks of the universe of my mind. These dictums are the fragments and foundations of my philosophy on life. These maxims are photographs of my psyche; they are sort of like a reflection of how I see Nature in the broken mirror of my memory and thoughts. They sum up the way I found this strange reality, this bizarre and immense art gallery we call the world. I hope t

BOOK EXCERPT:

Analysing the decorative programmes of the most opulent European palaces of the time, Margaretha Rossholm Lagerl?f investigates how meaning was conveyed through display and visual effects. She explores the visual meaning inherent in the scheme of spatial relations; in effects of scale, perspective, lighting, figures' positions and postures; and in relations among image types. The analysis concerns the interrelations of various kinds of images in the ensembles; the relations between images and physical site; and the address to the beholder. Lagerl?f considers the visual impact of the imagery in conjunction with 'readable' or symbolically 'coded' meanings; thus, the study does not merely subject these decorations to formalist aesthetic principles. She shows the visual meaning generally to sustain the verbal or readable messages, but often in subtle ways, extending or elaborating the meaning. Occasionally, the visual meaning comes forth as an undercurrent or complication, deviating from the proclaimed and symbolic meaning. Fate, Glory, and Love in Early Modern Gallery Decoration contributes to the body of scholarship on visual rhetoric and on how images 'act' out their messages.
