The Big Question Religious Art

The big question this week debated the use of religious art for those who aren’t religious, and how that translates into contemporary art. Personally I have grown up looking at religious art shown to me by my Grandad who understood it. Although he would also go further and look talk about where some of these images derive from, such as their pagan meanings from religions that were once a part of our culture. I have linked to a Iplayer documentary that I watched after this lecture. The quality for me is in the skill of the piece and within the language that still dominates contemporary paintings.
