Art Tuesday

I love the process whereby Scripture is translated into visual arts, and particularly the cultural crossovers and adaptations that take place just as the Gospel itself is translated linguistically.  An artist that I think is a beautiful example of this is Sadao Watanabe.  I first remember running across some of his work at the library during Seminary.  Tragically, I didn’t spend much time in the library and so I couldn’t appreciate the prints as often as I would have liked.

You can see some great examples of his traditional Japanese printmaking techniques just by Googling his name using Google’s image searching feature.
