What Good Art Can Do (video)

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/12/14

Irish artist John Dunne says art reminds us of "ultimate concerns"

Renowned Irish artist, John Dunne, has been painting all of his life.One of seven children, his imagination was ignited when he encountered Eastern art during his work with the British Air Force. Later, as his faith deepened, he began to focus  on sacred art. Dunne speaks about his process as an artist and how good art moves both the artist and the viewer, becoming a spiritual experience.
