Art In A Fallen World

Gregory Wolfe has a great piece in today’s The Wall Street Journal about what is missing from Thomas Kinkade’s art: a fallen world and God’s redemption. Read the whole thing, but here’s the conclusion:

But if faith teaches us anything, it should be that our nostalgia is for an ideal we can only find after accepting, and passing through, the brokenness of a fallen world. Any other approach, in art or in life, is a form of denial.
