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 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. 

Outro Music: “Always Ready, Always There”

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...

 

Outro Music: Lights On by Trip Lee
