The Art of Redemption

The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Investigate the link between worldview and art 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 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.

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!

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...

This week the trio is back together after some hardcore nomad-ing by Daniel. This episode starts of with some crappy conversation and continues to spiral the drain from there as we catch up and banter about whats been going on in our lives.

We introduce the new topic and series about Formalist art and what we'd like to cover over this next series of casts that you can look forward to hearing. What is formalist art? Basically in art, formalism is the study of art by analyzing and comparing form and style—the way objects are made and their purely visual aspects. You can think of a canvas with three colors all evenly painted onto it, looking a lot like a nations flag. There is no rhyme or reason for this, it almost purely composition and complimenting shapes and colors.

Finally we finish off with a game that you can participate in that we call fact vs fallacy. In this game we each tell 3 stories from our youth, two of which are true and one that is a lie. Your job is to determine which is a lie and comment on the episodes post, before anyone else, and tell us what you think the false story is. The first one to guess correct will win a copy of the highly applicable books Finding Truth or Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey

Good luck and may the odds ever be in your favor...

This week we have on our one and only Assistant to the Podcast Hosts Paul Lytle. He joins us as we talk about what Eucatastrophe is and how that fits into the Christian meta-narrative we have been covering in this series on LOTR.

As we dive into the last portion of the meta-narrative, the Consummation portion, we start of with the idea and word Tolkien himself made up: Eucatastrophe. This idea is the turning point in a story from where things look hopeless and at an end to a hope and victory.

As we talk about the Eucatastrophe in LOTR we all take turns talking about what point we like that reflects this idea best to us.

Hope you enjoyed the show and share us if you did!
