In this week’s episode, we take a look into what the outcome of the worldview of mysticism. We talk about the life and work of Mark Rothko, an American painter of Russian Jewish decent, often identified as an abstract expressionist painter.
As we look into the chronology of his work (found here, but not completely chronological!), we can see that as he got deeper into Mysticism things became less and less detailed, less and less meaningful. His work ends in massive black paintings displayed in the Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas.
In the end, when we try to dismiss God from our lives, it only leads to despair. Mark Rothko committed suicide before he found whatever he was searching for. He was looking for meaning outside of God and did not find it, nor will anyone. All worldviews, outside of a true Christian and Biblical worldview, leads to despair.
The Art of Redemption Radio—Bringing a Christian Worldview to the Arts.
In this show hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with the Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of the Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of the Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.
