    Turner & Rothko
  1. I agree there is nothing like seeing the real painting. I have seen many Rothko paintings in museums and find them very moving. Reproductions don't do them justice.
  2. Everything in life is interrelated to God. If we can't freely talk about art and faith as it relates to our culture today we are missing out. I find this painting extremely thought provoking. Is there a forum that discusses art that relates to our culture and faith?
  3. I find the depth of meaning in all of the panels touching and so appropriate for a young couple getting married. The way you have taken hearts and elevated them to the sacred level is a powerful symbol of love and faith.
  4. Jim and group, I have not been to the Rothko Chapel. I have studied it and hope to get there before too long. I have seen several of his printings and found them moving. Thanks for mentioning Simon Schama's PBS Series, The Power of Art featuring Rothko. I'll try to get a copy of it.
  5. I'm new on the forum and recognize that this is an old topic. However, it did bring to mind a responce I thought I would share. In response to: "Many Christians though, reported profound and life changing experiences upon interacting with this image..." Using mainstream modern art language, I believe that the work of Mark Rothko has sparked profound religious experiences to viewers. As he said, "The fact that people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate those basic human emotions... the people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when painting them. And if you say you are moved only by their color relationships then you miss the point."
  6. My abstract spiritual paintings can be viewed at http://MontanaDesignsUnlimited.com Several articles I have written on contemporary liturgical art can be read on http://EnVisionChurch.org under the Art>Reflections section. Linda McCray
