Before you go ahead and call out 'religion' on me, take a minute or two to consider this. Faith. What is it? Why does it matter? Faith is a prescription with which a life is lived and purpose of being is forged.
The art world is a curious beast driven by many a curious factor. What makes an artwork good, bad or indifferent has been the cause for many a heated debate in circles scholarly or otherwise. We address matters such as composition and colour theory and ask does it have rhythm and reason. We look to the artist's reputation and philosophy too. Such a complex equation to conclude a final deduction to whether it is a good piece of art or not.
