The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Bring a Christian Worldview to the Arts

 

In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

The summer series comes to a close in the Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson has interviewed a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more. Be sure to listen back if you haven't heard them all and let us know what you think...!

This finale episode we welcome Pastor, author, poet, musician, blogger, and debater Pastor Douglas Wilson. Pastor Wilson is the pastor of Christ Church in Moscow Idaho. His books have been largely influential in early episodes of our podcast and have helped up understand and interpret art and art culture in the world around us. 

In this episode we get to know Pastor Wilson and his many fields of the arts he participates in. We talk about how long it took for him to get his first book published even though in the 6th grade he knew he "wanted to make books." There was a lot of history covered in our conversation.

 As we talk about the art we hit on a couple of his writings. First the book Angels in the Architecture. What inspired the writing, what it was about, and how we can go back to a medieval mindset in not only our lives but in our understanding of the arts. 

The second was an article Pastor Wilson wrote for Chronicles Magazine titled Game of Bones. In this he wrote about the empty art of Games of Thrones and other arts that are similar. They lack some key things to make it good art. We talked in depth about that idea, what makes it good art or empty art. Join us as we talk about art and art culture in this interview with the artist finale....

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome Kent Rabalias (Rah-ba-lay) who is the Executive Director of Communication at the Village Church in Flower-mound Texas. In this episode we talk about what art Kent has been doing and does, how the church can use art in the church proper and also outside of the church community and be noticed and appreciated for being great artists. 

Kent studied at Baylor and moved through many different positions to get where he is today at The Village. He always has a passion for stories and that helped him in many ways in his artistic endeavors. He has been involved in making films, both feature films and shorts. He and his creative group we recognized and won awards at the Dallas Society of Visual Communication ceremony. He helps develop others in their artistic areas as well and helps to create great content through The Village Church for their members and other viewers around the globe.

Listen in as we talk about these things and much more. And be sure to pay attention to what you can do, even in your small local church, to help use the arts to Glorify God and shine His Name to the nations around us.

 

Outro Music: Exodux series intro video - created by The Village Church creative team

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome Stephen Altrogge a coffee master and writer of many things; books, blogs, articles, and songs. Listen in as we talk about these different things and how the approach to each is a bit different. 

If you like really great coffee (and even if you don't) you can hear us talking about the amazing pour over coffee making process and how its superior to all other forms of coffee. Than we get into writing and how Stephen is a writer of many things including music.

We chat about how each of those are different and then get into a conversation about the art in general and the arts in Christendom as well. Though we both may tend to be a bit cynical there are some good things said.

Here are Stephens top reco's and Musts:

Books: 1. Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott

           2. Daily Rituals by Mason Curry

           3. by Stephen Field

4. Just start doing it, do what you want to do in the arts!

The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome Chris Bruno, an author with Crossway, a pastor and professor at Bethlehem College and Seminary. He lives in Hawaii and has been in the pastorate there for some years now and is in the process of moving to Minnesota to join Bethlehem as a professor.

In the episode we talk about his background as a writer, his influences in the culture that is in Hawaii, and his book The Whole Message of the Bible in 16 Words (The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses) by Crossway

We talk about the challenges to a writer to take such a large thing like the Bible and condense it into just 16 thoughts or phrases. We talk about how all artists are really challenged in their work to take large concepts and ideas and pull it onto a field that the viewer can relate to and understand. We again bring up this reoccurring idea that as artists we try to make sense of the world around us and more specifically we try to make order from chaos, an idea that seems to be backwards into days mainstream arts. 

Join us as we talk about art and art culture in Hawaii and how we as artist need to know what niche and people group our art is aimed at and then produce art in that vein very well...

Chris' top recommendations and musts:

1. Culture Making by Andy Crouch

2. Silence (the movie) by Martin Scorsese (Makoto Fujimura)

3. The Rabbit Room - Andrew Peterson (President)

 

Outro Music: Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome Michael Minkoff from the Nehemiah Foundation and Renew the Arts. Michael is a multi-instrumental musician, a writer, a lyricist, and author, but primarily a poet. You could say he is the jack of all trades, artist of many, and master of none.

This episode is packed full of great information and perspective of the arts as a whole and more specifically in the church. There weren't may questions asked because Micheal just walked right through the questions I had and nailed it down pretty good. 

Listen in as he talks about his art, how he got into it and how he came to the point of starting a foundation just for Christian artists who need to be heard. His heart and desire behind the Nehemiah Foundation is awesome. He knows where the culture lays in its view of the arts that come from Christendom and how Christian artists are being treated by the church and not supported. 

We talk about how the church fails, failed, and is failing to notice its talented and called artist and how they won't help them until they are listened to or making money. The church doesn't take are seriously. Art is seen as either a luxury that isn't necessary or as a commodity. But it is far more than that, it is communication. We see this in the Bible as God communicated His Word to us in the form of art through many artists. Art is central to the Gospel and it can be used for good and bad. We, as Christians and Christian artists need to support and get behind the artist in our local congregations and stop supporting a secularized art world in the culture at large around us. If we want good Christian art we are going to have to stand up and pay for it...

And you can do that through Micheal's foundation using the links below!

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome Matt Horne, a great personal friend, pastor, husband, father, coffee roaster, architect, drawer, and photographer.

Cody and Matt sit down and chat about Matt's architecture background, how that developed from a love of drawing and how it help him, and his family, on the mission field in Uganda. 

We also talk about how architecture in churches reflect the beliefs that we hold about God. How would a church building do that? Matt expounds, and really only scratches the surface, of the history of architecture in church buildings, going all the way back to pre-renaissance and the gothic era and then bringing it up today. 

What designs we see in those old buildings today compared to the "mega-church" style building today is vary different and thats because the built environment will shape and reflect the culture and beliefs in that culture about God.Listen in as we get a little deeper into the building around us and how design speaks to us...

Matt's Top recommendations:

1. the Netflix series Abstract

2. Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke

3. Architects: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Rem Koolhaas

4. Seven Lamps of Architecture by John Ruskin

 

Be sure to get some coffee! Matt's coffee roasting company is doing a special discount for all AOR podcast listeners.

The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome an artist who is a staff writer for Humble Beast, a Spoken Word Poet, and Pastoral Assistant at Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Isaac Adams. Heard Isaac speak at TGC 17 this year when he did a spoken word piece for MLK50, a conference on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. assassination.

In this interview we talk about Isaac and his art of writing and spoken word poetry and how that started in high school with writing love songs for crushes and how God intervened and redeemed his abilities as a lyricist for His Glory. 

We talk about his writing for Humble Beast and the three areas in which he aims his writing: The Local Church and how its indispensable, Race and understanding of the way things are seen, and The Arts and letting art be what it is. We talk about how these things impact his art, his preaching and teaching, and his writing. 

As we talk about art we get into how art is a type of thievery and how we need to take art and make it our own in that idea. How good art seems to always have a protagonist and an antagonist. How Christian art doesn't have to explicitly mention God or the Gospel to be good art and more.

Good art can be hard to find but it rewards your efforts. The world needs poetry because the world needs to slow down. Christian art tends to be schlawcky art or lazy art. These are some more topics we hit as we talk about art and art cultures. 

We also talk about Star Wars and what makes it so great even though its a non-christian find industry and George Lucas didn't intend for it to be a Christian piece. We, as Christians, can take good art made by the world and redeem the Gospel centric areas of that art and use it for our benefit and God's Glory. Join us as we talk about these things and more...

Isaac Adams' top recommendations and musts:

1. Christians Pray for your art

2. Have friends audit your art

3. Get a survey or review of you art annually from people you know

4. Challenge yourself and publish to non-christian outlets

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

In this episode Cody interviews Dan and Ning Gelok from Texas. Dan is a professor of saxophone at the University of Houston where he teaches well... uh...saxophone. Ning is an accomplished violinist and pianist who homeschool their kids, teaches some on the side and plays gigs occasionally.

In this episode we get to know the Geloks a bit and hear about their particular field as musicians. We talk about popularity and pride that can come from being very accomplished and well known musicians and how a Christian worldview can help regulate and temper those feelings that com natural to all of us. 

We get into the art in Christendom and how often the music and other arts, produced by the Christian culture is often watered down, made for a wide audience to consume, and made to make a lot of money. This mindset causes it to be shallow and lack really any good doctrine. Its all happy style music that leads to a massive crescendo that isn't all that true and realistic.

We talk about the style of music that the Gelok's play and produce and that with it being a new age or new classical style, it can be controversial because of the stretching that it causes in the music industry. Its not your everyday Mozart or Bach, its not traditional so it causes controversies for the listener in that they have to learn a new thing or a new way to appreciate it. They have to pick up a different lens to look through.

 

The Gelok's Top recommendations:

1. Listen to live Music

2. Know the roots/history of your genre in the arts

3. Music: Miles DavisBéla Bartók or Sergei Prokofiev

4. Books: The God Who is There and Escape from Reason by Schaffer; The Rest is Noise by Alex Cross

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

In this episode Cody interviews Les Lanphere from the Reformed Pubcast. Les is a computer graphics designer, film maker, and digital effects artist.

In the episode we talk about his past in design and how he ended up in his role in some hollywood films and his own movie he is making called Calvinist. How his rode has lead him to take up a mission to make a documentary about the Calvinistic resurgence in America, and how he's gotten to meet many of his heros of the faith. 

We talk about Christian art and how we should or shouldn't be doing it. Should it best the best? How should it be done or impact the world around us? What should it look like? and more... 

 

Les' Top Recommendations for artists:

1. Start a Podcast - make time to talk through things on purpose 

2. Lynda.com - training for software

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

In this episode Cody interviews a returning guest and artist Paul Lytle. We talk about the life and music of Paul and when he started his music and music writing as a young boy. Paul was deep into Grunge and Post Grunge music and how that impacted his music. When he came into his 30's he started listening to music around him and became more aware of music as a whole and returned back to his keyboard in the new wave view of music.

We get a little deep into how the world and secular culture takes the order that God established from Chaos and and inverts that order into chaos. 

We also talk about Paul's Novels, available on Amazon, and his writing that he has done in the past. We dive into his art theory, his passion and his inspiration to keep writing and making music.

Paul's Top Reco's for every artist:

1. Tolkiens Essays

2. Angels in the Architecture by Douglas Wilson/ Douglas Jones

The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This is the final episode in the What is Art Series and it is also Roy's farewell episode. Roy will be heading off to basic for the National Guard this week and will return in the fall. Please pray for him and his family during this time as they will be traveling a lot and training for his new position. And don't forget to support Roy and his family by joining him on his support page for his art through the link below!

In this episode we summarize what art is in a 3 part description in this way -

Art is 1) intelligent communication that 2) functions by association or metaphor and is 3) necessarily incarnational.

In this episode the guy take this description and exegete it you could say. They work through each point and explain how and why they think this is an apt description for art now. Many times art is relative and subjective but often it can have a solid and concrete meaning, and that is what they try to do in this episode.

They talk about an untitled painting by Donald Judd who was an American artist associated with minimalism. In his work, Judd sought autonomy and clarity for the constructed object and the space created by it, ultimately achieving a rigorously democratic presentation without compositional hierarchy.

In talking about this painting Cody quickly associates it to himself because of the clothes he wears to work on a daily basis. Roy points out that this is what we do when we view art, there is some sort of associating that we do, it communicates to us in the associational or metaphorical way of something incarnations.

As we continue in the What is Art series we talk this week about art being Relationship. How and what is art in a relationship with? When art is placed into a museum and gallery it is now art because of its relationship with its location.

The way art is determined to be art is through something called Artworld Theory, a term and idea that came about through the theorizing of Arthur Donto. He has said that "the artworld as the provider of an operational theory of art that participants use to distinguish art from non-art." So the idea of where that art is placed and how its recognized in relationship to the culture determines if its actually art or not. 

So does that mean if your creative work is not in a gallery its not art? We say nah-nah! God has made us all as artists, we are all creative, and we are all modeling to some degree God's creative power in our lives that isn't dependent on relationship to its surrounding our culture. We are to create because we were created in God's creative image, Imago Dei.

We talk about two pieces of art the first by Robert Rauschenberg titled Bed and the Second we added again Any Warhol's Brillo Box. As we look at these two pieces and talk about what they mean and how they are so innovative we also play a game and try to sell them to each other, something Cody is not a huge fan of. These pieces are steps in a direction and how they are in relationship to reality, tangible life pieces, and abstract expressionism.

In another episode of the What is art series Cody and Roy talk about art being worship. There is a worldview among some artist called Aesthetic Sense Theory and in this worldview they take art for sole the aesthetic elements, chopping out anything and everything else.

Clive Bell, an aesthetic sense theorist, even goes as far as to say "art is the way in which we know ultimate truth." This is a dangerous and erroneous theory and worldview. It takes what was created and gifted to man and raises it to a place of God, therefore making it an idol, a thing to cause worship.

This theory leads to aesthetic exaltation and the art piece itself causing the viewer to worship it. It takes everything away except emotion and that is what we are to ride on. This is a crazy place to try and live from. 

There were other people in this group of theorists and that had a gang called the Bloomsburry Group. In this group you have people like Clive Bell, Roger Fry, Virginia Woolf and others. These people fed off one another thoughts and only caused their theory to become stronger. 

We talk about this and the danger and sadness that this type of worldview brings and how empty and devoid of any hope it is...

 The guys start off this episode by talking to Cody about the Gospel Coalition Conference he and Daniel attended. He gives an update on the conference an some of the workshops and people he met and attended. He tells a story about their AirBnb house key that was lost and going through a process to get a new one made.

As they get into the meat of the episode that continue the series on What is Art. As they talk about the pieces in the episode today that bring to the forefront that art is more than just a man sitting infant of a canvas being creative and painting a cool picture. Art is a form and medium of communication. What does it communicate?

In the pieces they examine today, taken from the walls of the Arena Chapel in Italy, they show that art often did not portray an accurate picture of the subject, but rather, portrayed the ideal of that particular person or position. 

They dig into a close up of one of the panels from the chapel and talk about the assumed people based on knowledge and understanding of art. There are recognizable people even if you don't know who they are you can know how they are. Having some knowledge of art and history can give any person the ability to interpret a piece of art and look past the surface of the painting and read it like it was intended to be. Art speaks, art is a story without words, art is communication...

The week in the Formalistic Art Series we talk about Color. How important is color? What does it communicate? Why do we use it? Why do some colors draw us in while others don't pull our interest much? All these questions and more we talk about...

In this episode we talk about the color wheel and its Primary, Secondary and Tertiary colors gamut. How these colors are used in art is important because color and tones of color communicate just as much as words do. How color is seen sets the mood, the feeling, the vibe of the piece of art. Color can be used well and it can be used not so good.

We start of with Any Worhal and his Brillobox design. How he used basics in art to create a unique and compelling product. Though simple and basic it communicates.

We talk about The Watchman, and specifically Dr. Manhattan when reflecting on the past while on Mars. We talk about a painting done by Roy Lichtenstein called Wonder Woman as well. As we look at these pieces we compare the mood and feel just based on color. 

How can you tell a Marvel Superhero or DC Superhero apart from the rest? Primary colors are the focus of Captain America, Wonder Woman, Ironman, and Superman. In contrast if you take the graphic novel The Watchman you'll get a completely different color gamut, and that being Tertiary colors. The illustrator uses a different color gamut to communicate in this graphic novel the feel and the essence of this piece of art.

We finish off with talking about The Lord of the Rings. There is an overarching feel through the movies of a growing darkness. The color in the beginning is almost washed out in the last movie. There is hardly any color and the color that is there is darkened and drab. These color changes communicate, give a mood and feeling to a piece of art. Color is important, almost as important as words themselves...

This weeks episode brings the guys face to face with Value. Value isn't just what a piece of art is worth to someone or what someone is willing to pay for it. So what is it then? 

Value is the lightness or darkness of tones or colors. White is the lightest value; black is the darkest. The value halfway between these extremes is called middle gray. Space An element of art by which positive and negative areas are defined or a sense of depth achieved in a work of art.

We talk about some portrait shot in the book Framed Ink by Marcos Mateu-Mestre and how lighting in these photos can change the feel and mood of the person being photographed. Take a look at the book using the link and see if its a helpful resource for you too!

As we chat about Value and what it does for a piece of art we look at one particular photographer named Platon. You can see some of the portraits he has done on his website here

We talk about hoe lighting and contrast help to give a feel and mood for a piece of art. The angle, perspective, how dark or light and more.

This next episode in the series hit on Texture in art. We examine a few pieces of art and describe how texture really helps to draw in the critic to the particular piece of art.

The first piece we look at in this episode is Knight, Death and the Devil by Hans Baldung, Albrecht Dürer. We talk about the piece of art itself, the process in which it was created, (which is really fascinating and impressive) the detail in it and the varying textures that can beed felt and seen.

We hit a more popular artist in the second painting, one we've talked about before, and that is Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. We look into the texture and types of texture used to give this a real life feel. This is a more realistic texture approach to painting.

Next is a really cool floral painting by Paula Nizamas titled Kissed by the Sun in which there is some great texture and feeling to it. This painting seems to have flowers that pop off in  an almost 3D way!

And last but not least we talk about a photo of a painting, its like art in art of what look like a burial ceremony illusion of men smoking in the hole dug for a casket. This piece give an illusion of realistic things as well as making one feel like they are in the ground.

Feb 24, 2017

This week we take on some Shapes and how they fit into and work in art. We talk about a process called the Feldman's Method of art analysis. We dive into how this process works and then get on a rabbit trail on how this process (hermeneutics) can be used by a Christian for biblical studies and daily understanding of God's Word.  

Roy gives Daniel a chance to try out the method on a picture of a dog. He does really well describing it but you can see the picture here

We play an art version of Apples to Apples with a couple pieces of art; one by Picaso called Man with Guitar and the second, by Wassily Kandinski called Yellow, Red, Blue. Roy gives Cody and Daniel some words and they have to try and use the Feldman's Method to determine what word best describes the particular piece they are given. 

Give this method try next time you evaluate a piece of art, or, even better, use it in your personal Bible study time!

Feb 17, 2017

This week we start into the new series on formalistic art. What is formalistic art you might ask? A piece of art's form is composed of its basic elements: Line, shape, value, texture, and color. These elements constitute the fundamental language used by formalist art critics to examine and analyze works of art. This is a method of looking at the art and not really looking at the message or worldview. Rather, it looks at the art as a piece and examines it basically devoid of its meaning.

In this episode we are joined by John Blinn, another on of the brother-in-laws, and we talk about some particular pieces of art and the idea of lines. What roe do lines play in art? What do lines do? What do they communicate? What is an implied line? Are they helpful and well done?

We finish off the episode by playing a line game. We describe these pictures of lines and even come up with out own stories about these types of lines. They will be on the Facebook page and please give us your story about your line!

Here are links to the images we talked about in this cast. The line game we played is on our FaceBook page...
