Overview

Seeing consists of twenty brief essays about the role of contemporary artists of faith, their audience, and Christianity. These essays bring to discussion topics from postmodernism, authenticity and iconoclasm to individualism, beauty, and truth. Each essay focuses on issues that relate to how artists of faith approach their thinking about art, how viewers can enhance their experience of artworks and the relationship between Postmodernism and Christianity. Campbell explores, within the current Postmodernist environment, how art and Christianity can be discussed in the present tense and how Art by Contemporary Christians is now a topic for serious discussion that cannot be dismissed as merely an oxymoron. These essays bring to discussion issues that have been ignored by mainstream art publications.
