PAINTING SAINT GEORGE: CHANGES AND THE CONTINUITY IN CHRISTIAN ART [Abstract ID: 0203-08]
Painting evolves as a universal phenomenon, and each evolution brings light to the human image and knowledge. A good example is the painting of Saint George. In Christian art history, painting Saint George underwent a series of changes. It has recorded dynamics of pattern, space, color, content and meaning. Using Critical Textual and Semiotics Analysis (CTSA), the paintings of St. George are carefully investigated in this paper. Data, that is, the paintings and texts (theological and historical texts) are collected from multiple sources and places. The CTSA and interpretive commentaries took the temporal, spatial, liturgical, hagiographical, historical, and artistic perspectives in a continuum. The continuum took a chronological pattern because the analysis is done in linear approaches. The commentary interpretations are also the theological paradigms of Christianity in which analytical professionalism is manifested.
