Albano’s sculptures are clearly human although not always easily discernible. These bodies seem to have been vacated leaving just skin and bone. Each one of them could be considered a ‘Mental Body’ -evidence of “the effect of societal pressures and psychological violence on the human body and collective conscience” (Galerist). 36 more words

Attributes of God: Incorporeality Part 1

Traditional Christianity affirms that God is an immaterial, nonphysical reality. This is to say that God is formless or “without body.”[1] Christianity has historically opposed material conceptions of God and instead posited that God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are lacking any material structure or composition, that is apart from the incarnation of Christ. 1,234 more words
