The Human Figure and Contemporary Sacred Art

September 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As God’s highest creation is man, the artist values the human figure as subject, and vehicle to evoke emotion, as metaphor and symbol. Ideals of beauty and proportion have been drawn since ancient times from the human figure. Perfection in the figure has been seen as a way to show Goodness.

Artists use the figure to express invisible truths. We have common experience of love, fear, compassion and artists use the figure to discuss these realities. Charity is represented by a nursing mother, heroic nobility by a dying soldier. The Greeks envisioned Inspiration as beautiful women. These abstract ideas and realities are important and intriguing subjects.

Artists use the visual language of the human figure with gesture and proportion as the vocabulary for the deepest truth: the human person is beloved by the Creator.
