Spirit of the ArtsVisual Art: Visions of Glory in Eschatological Community

Spirit of the Arts: Visual Art: Visions of Glory in Eschatological Community [By assessing visibility and folk art, this chapter gives our pneumatological aesthetics a visionary eschatological component that is integral to one’s understanding of community. Pentecostals and charismatics are an eschatological people, and visual art can play a significant role in community formation and symbolic expression. This chapter overviews outsider and folk art, particularly focusing on the works of William Thomas Thompson, Sister Gertrude Morgan, and Howard Finster. Although the artworld recognizes the artists over against their actual artistic production, one can still glean important things about symbolic expression and authenticity from these artists. This chapter posits that artists can truly create visionary works when they come from a place of authenticity.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[By assessing visibility and folk art, this chapter gives our pneumatological aesthetics a visionary eschatological component that is integral to one’s understanding of community. Pentecostals and charismatics are an eschatological people, and visual art can play a significant role in community formation and symbolic expression. This chapter overviews outsider and folk art, particularly focusing on the works of William Thomas Thompson, Sister Gertrude Morgan, and Howard Finster. Although the artworld recognizes the artists over against their actual artistic production, one can still glean important things about symbolic expression and authenticity from these artists. This chapter posits that artists can truly create visionary works when they come from a place of authenticity.]
