There are two major ideologies in the art world today. One of these
ideologies concerns itself only with the Physical world. Much of Post-
Modernist art, in conjunction with the “Art-for-Art’s Sake” philosophy
abides in this tradition. Such art exists within limited perimeters and has
no greater purpose.
However another ideology concerns itself with Spiritual issues and the
relationship which exists between the Physical and the Spiritual. The work

of ideology.
The work of George Kofas attempts to explore issues regarding the
interrelationship existing between the Physical and the Spiritual realms
and attempts to present various components of the Spiritual.
