THE first force of a work of art is its appeal to the senses. This is direct and immediate. It is the physical effect, almost utterly inescapable whenever there is presented to anyone a vigorous composition in color or in tone or a strong rhythm of song or of motion.
Religion, which has disdained the arts as sensuous, has not, therefore, escaped sensationalism. It has developed the sensational preacher. He is the man who preaches for a sensuous effect. He has greater success usually in getting people to come to hear what he has to say than in having something worthwhile to say when they get there. This is not always true but it is so very commonly. Our most thoughtful ministers, those under whose preaching the more serious-minded people desire to sit, are little given to sensational preaching. Their form is good form but it is not nowadays florid, overly dramatic, or eccentric form. They touch upon timely themes of the day, not as advertising captions but for real discussion. Your true and proper sensationalist develops rhetoric, gesture, perhaps even haircuts, newspaper themes, and peculiar exercises calculated to rouse interest and produce a momentary enjoyment or excitement.
However much we may desire to spiritualize our religion, we are not disembodied spirits; we are compact together of flesh and spirit.
“The Sensational Character of Art” By Von Ogden Vogt
This is not a digital artwork; it is one of the last oil and canvas painting I made. I have decided to include this image into the “digital media” exhibition as a tribute to all my previous fine-art experiments. I would not say that I never return to paining and drawing, who knows, but I’m quite happy with what I’m going now so far.
