If any piece of art ( in all the 7 known artistic / "aesthetic" branches ) does not touch your emotions and senses, then do not just think you're under-developed, ( in your right encephalus ) it's simply a question of preferences and tastes :)
Art for me is a form of worship, an expression of the higher being, an imitation of the creator who created a creator in His image, that's why I dance all my prayers onto God :)
I think you got the hidden message in slide 5 =)
I agree fully with the above comment. Having myself lent my hand to drawing and painting, music and the guitar as well as writing and poetry. Art is from within it expresses a part of our soul, it is a form of expressing love and is a prayer to him and can be a praise to his wonders and creations. God is not to be stick within the confines of a box! Not in temples made with hands as sayeth the prophet! No you cannot stuff art into a box and say only this is art! Art is the expression of the soul crying out! You have a powerful way of writing and using pictures to illustrate. Your work is thought provoking and meaningful! Wonderful!
Thank you for your kind words.
For Slide 5 I choose that clip-art painting image because it reminded me so much of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling painting of "The Creation of Adam".
The text underneath and the magnifying glass is a semi-cryptic message that IMHO so very religious people (i.e. fundamentalists) are so busy look at the fine details (of the picture) that they are not seeing the beauty of the whole scene (the miracle of life)... IMHO =)
LOve the art works.
Thank you, I had fun with doing the art for this piece.
