Forty Years of Spectrum - Art

(system) #1

Spectrum Magazine has consistently been on the cutting edge of examining Adventist theology and issues. But it has also frequently featured Adventist art and poetry. During this, Adventist Forum's 40th anniversary year, we will be periodically featuring some of the art from these issues. Spectrum archives are available here. This set of images is taken from 3 different issues in 1969. The artist is Dirk K. Koopmans.

From: A portfolio by Dirk Kerst Koopmans:

"Art has in its nature a religious essence. In the field of painting this is transmitted by what the eye sees and by the hand which directs the artist's brush. Thus an encounter with the transcendental is possible. The closer this becomes, consciously or unconsciously, the more the meaning of art is fulfilled."
