From ancient times to modern times, the sacredness and grandness of religion have been immortalized through art. However, the “contemporary religious art” is a category of art that does not exist today. Does the absence of this category of art symbolize the rise of secular values and the consequential fall of religion? Are the cynicism, hostility and nihilism brought by the critical spirit of artists the reasons behind all these? Or is it just as indicated by many art critics that art has eventually replaced religion and become enshrined by people? Art used to serve religion and, in the contemporary time, art and religion are at two different ends. Once basking in shared glory, do art and religion have to stay in separate paths? In this large-scale retrospective exhibition, Lines, of the works by Shi Jin-hua, we can see how a contemporary artist has perfectly merged art and religious spirit to serve as the best example of “contemporary religious art”. In this exhibition, religion is no longer just a theme of artistic creation while art is no longer just a promoter of religion. Shi merges the two into daily-life actions, not the actions of “Performance Art” but the actions of an ascetic-artist, turning all the pains and sufferings in life into “lines” and engrossing himself in artistic creation with one line after another until the end of his life.
