Out of nothing: painting and spirituality

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter

Abstract

The collection of esssays in this book explore the relationship between spirituality and art and result from a conference that took place in December 2010 at Liverpool Cathedral. One of the objectives of this book is to address the questions of the relationship of spirituality and art within the context of the art gallery, religious institutions and the academy and at personal and social levels. The volume articulates the interdisciplinary nature of the subject and explores pressing concerns of the contemporary age. My essay 'Out of Nothing: Painting and Spirituality' explores the possibilities for a revised notion of spirituality within the context of contemporary abstract painting, using my own painting as an example
