Frammenti di Luce

Benvenuto

“Frammenti di Luce” fornisce un forum dove artisti e critici di molti paesi possono condividere pensieri, interessi e idee nel campo delle arti e della spiritualità, nonché il potere dell’espressione creativa per “umanizzare” la nostra cultura e per guarire e trasformare le vite. Il blog include sia estratti di saggi pubblicati, sia riflessioni originali di artisti, scrittori, musicisti e professionisti del teatro. Invitiamo i lettori a rispondere a questi testi pubblicati con la speranza di favorire la conversazione, la riflessione e la discussione su fede e creatività, preghiera contemplativa ed esperienza estetica, sulla liturgia Cristiana e la bellezza e sui temi connessi.

Il blog trae la sua energia dalle stagioni dell’Anno Ecclesiastico e dalle feste importanti condivise. Se desiderate partecipare come utenti regolari o come ospiti o se avete idee per argomenti di conversazione, inviate una email ad Lillian Miao.

Easter Outpouring

Donald Jackson’s illuminations for the twenty-fourth chapter of Luke’s Gospel burst off the manuscript page with tangible energy. The brilliant gold of Christ’s cross explodes out of the darkness: this is the Cross Triumphant.

. . . suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!” —Luke 24:4

. . . in my own design work I’ll do something very structured and then I’ll just take the paint and I’ll go — whack! straight on to it — and splash every where — so you get that, ‘what’s going to happen?’ — you get that, absolute instant excitement against a really carefully articulated, beautifully crafted something else. That is a risk — and a lot of life — that’s the moment that I’m looking for. —Donald Jackson
