Its noticable that all the great artistic traditions embody their religious worldviews. From hindu temples, christian churches, greek statues of gods and heroes, egyptian sarchophagi etc.
However the modern/contemporary art seems to lack this entirely. If it refers to it, its mostly in the mode of rejection & rebellion, for example seranos piss-christ. There are some pieces that reflect on a ambiguous transcendentalism, Rothkes large muted canvases come to mind.
Is this a reflection that for the art-making and art-appreciating classes in the western world religion has no ontological weight? That their world-view is then materialistic and focused on the present now rather than pointing to some spiritual realm?
