Anish Kapoor: 'If I was a young Muslim, would I feel angry enough to join Isis? I would at least think about it'

Britain has gone through the looking glass and the artist’s new show follows it into the abyss. He talks about the upsurge in racism, fighting for Shamima Begum – and his clash with France’s presidentAt 7.30 on the morning after Britain voted to leave the European Union, Anish Kapoor left his London flat for an appointment with his analyst. On the street, he heard two men talking. “Bet he doesn’t even speak English,” said one. “I turned around and they were talking about me. I was so furious.”Si...

In Our Own Skin: Create FOR the church, AT the church or AS the church

Art as a commodity The first thing artists are accepted as in the church setting is as artisans who make things for the purposes of the church. This can be songs, music, architecture, graphics–or anything where the crafts of these servants are utilized. Film clips are used as sermon illustrations and graphics to help promote church events. Songs support a theme. We sing prayers. What we see creation at this level is not wrong. But, created content lives in this space as a commodity. There ar...

The Christian Art of Letter Writing

By: Benedict Coughlin The advent of February heralds the approach of the day for which most of us write our only letter of the year, Valentine’s Day. We walk into the nearest stationary shop and pick out a single card with an eye to the picture and witticism, mindful that we should not choose a card too big to be filled with a few choice words. The more daring of us believe that an entire page can be filled with such words, and sometimes we fail, too accustomed to the quick emails and texts of o...

Giant leap for art: Lichfield Cathedral to become 'lunar landscape'

Installation will transform cathedral floor to mark 50 years since Apollo 11 moon landingIt’s hard to imagine anything less like a lunar landscape than the medieval glories of Lichfield Cathedral. But this summer, an artist will transform its magnificent tiled floor into a representation of the moon’s surface to mark half a century since Neil Armstrong took “one small step for [a] man and one giant leap for mankind”.The three-spired cathedral in Staffordshire has commissioned the art installatio...

9 weird and terrifying monsters from Japanese mythology

Compared to Japan's menagerie of creatures, Western folklore can feel a little drab.The collection of yōkai—supernatural beasts or spirits—has a staggering amount of variety.Although there are many more creative folkloric creatures, here are nine that caught our attention. None Like any culture, Japan has its fair share of folkloric creatures. But to Westerners, whose folklore tends to recycle the same variations on witches, goblins, orcs, and dragons, Japan's bestiary of creatures can be stagge...

Superman: America's Jewish superhero?

Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, the children of Jewish immigrants, right when the world was contending with growing anti-Semitism.The experience of Jewish immigrants in America and Superman's own fictional origins have striking similarities.Though this theory has its critics, there seem to be too many parallels to dismiss it out of hand. None In the mid-19th century, an immigrant fleeing horrific violence arrived in America. He quickly assimilated, adopting an American-sou...

Laurie Campbell Perfectly Captures Winter in the City

~ Making one’s way through almost any busy city during snowy winter days requires a certain hunkered-down and focused steely resolve.  Montreal realist painter Laurie Campbell beautifully captures this feeling in her cityscapes of Montreal and elsewhere.  The chill in the air, the wetness of walkways covered with snow and slush, and the occasional icy slipperiness […]

The Musical Instruments in Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights Get Brought to Life, and It Turns Out That They Sound “Painful” and “Horrible”

Welcome to The Garden of Earthly Delights. You’ll find no angelic strings here. Those are reserved for first class citizens whose virtuous lives earned them passage to the uppermost heights. Down below, stringed instruments produce the most hellish sort of cacophony, a fitting accompaniment for the horn whose bell is befouled with the arm of a tortured soul. How do we know that's what they sounded like? A group of musicologists, craftspeople and academics from the Bate Collection of Musical...

Katori Hall’s play Our Lady of Kibeho is the story of three friends who insisted that they were visited by the Virgin Mary and told of the horror that lay aheadThe 16-year-old schoolgirl Alphonsine Mumureke said she was in the cafeteria of the Catholic boarding school Kibeho College, Rwanda, when she heard a voice “soft as air and sweeter than music”.

A Hot Cup of Murder

One time, the Archbishop of St. Louis tried to shut down a New Line show called Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll. I'm not kidding. He failed. Well, he successfully shut down our preview, but we were open again for opening night. You can read about that here.Our show was just a revue of theatre songs on those topics, three of the most powerful forces on humans, including songs from Rent, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q, Songs for a New World, Hair, The Rocky Horror Show, Kiss of the Spider Woman,...

10 Rules for Appreciating Art by Sister Wendy Beckett (RIP), the Nun Who Unexpectedly Popularized Art History on TV

While life lasts, let us live it, not pass through as zombies, and let us find in art a glorious passageway to a deeper understanding of our essential humanity. - Sister Wendy Beckett (1930-2018) Sister Wendy, a cloistered nun whose passion for art led her to wander out into the world, where she became a star of global proportions, entertained the television masses with her frank humanist assessments. Unphased by nudity, carnality, and other sensual excesses, she initially came across ...

Marc-Aurele Fortin’s Small-Town Quebec

A Short Video Introduction to Hilma af Klint, the Mystical Female Painter Who Helped Invent Abstract Art

It can be both a blessing and curse for an artist to toil at the behest of an influential patron. Financial support and powerful connections are among the obvious perks. Being hamstrung by someone else’s ego and timeframe are some of the less welcome realities on the flip side. Hilma af Klint, the subject of a high profile exhibition at the Guggenheim, does not fit the usual artist-patron mold. She made her paintings to suit a spirit named Amaliel, with whom she connected in a seance. Amali...

7 of the most interesting fictional drugs

Fictional drugs are a major part of the lore and foundation for many science fiction stories. The unique effects they have on their characters is an interesting new way to explore important issues. Many of these fictional drugs are synonymous with the stories that have been told.Fiction writers have always been good at whisking us away to strange and new alien worlds, places we've never dreamed of and that would never have seen the light of day if they had not been coaxed from the author's wild...

James Gandolfini

I started watching The Sopranos again… I had planned to wait until our firstborn was here because people kept saying we should plan some box-sets for those first few weeks of sleep, feed, change, sleep, feed, change, repeat… I couldn’t help myself. It’s ok though, if I need to go back and watch it again that won’t be a problem. I’m getting close to twenty viewings of the entire series now. Yikes. Here’s a new sketch of James Gandolfini.
