Traces of God at the NGV

Introduction

 

 

BIG QUESTION: How can visual art be a spiritual language?

As part of the 'Traces of God' series, this unit of work visits the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to explore the spiritual dimension of the visual arts. The creation of art is about transcendence. Artists speak of moving to another level of awareness when they are deeply involved with their work. Time and space dissolve as the artist enters into a profound experience of creativity that can only be described as a spiritual experience. Explore each section of this unit (see the panel on the right of the page) as you formulate your own answer to the question: How can visual art be a spiritual language?
