Abstract art in a church, meditative?
1 October 2008 5 Comments
I’m back from a bit of a whirlwind trip to California. The first three days were a bit on the crazy side especially. Lucky me I’m sick too, which isn’t all that unusual after I come back from busy travel. Unfortunately.
Makoto Fujimura posted some photos to his blog (he posts very rarely) yesterdayish of a new installation of his own in a New Haven church.
The church looks pretty plain other than Mako’s glorious installation. I’m curious to know if readers find this very abstract painting meditative or not. One of my first thoughts in looking at the above photo was how much more spiritually engaging the space is with that large gold and blue nihonga work than without, and even how much more engaging it is than most other common altar items.
