You can view the beauty of God’s Creation, or you can see the scum. It’s all a matter of perspective. Art is imitating God’s creation in all of its glory. There are elements of color, proportion, symmetry, perspective, emotion, connection, complexity and personality all tied up in art. What makes up good art? Artists don’t agree and usually cannot come up with anything, yet you know it when you see it. Is it all a matter of personal experience or preference? Classical art often reflected what you knew was truth, beauty and happiness, and it was usually done in the name of Jesus. Now, secular art isn’t like that, and since the classical time there has been a rebellion against the church and representational art. I call it art entropy: the devolution of art. Without meaning, art becomes an emotional expression, often that of chaos, confusion and nihilism. But Christian art counters that, and should reflect the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.
