One Question Interviews: Father Murphy

Father Murphy

SPB: In the past you have mentioned that religion is one of your main inspirations. What is your opinion on the influence of religion on the arts? Do you believe that great works of arts, like Michelangelo’s Last Judgement or Dante’s Divine Comedy would never come to be if it was not for the influence of religion, or would they simply find influence from a different source to create something equally monumental?

Father Murphy: In our opinion, artists are simply media that see transcendence in small things, such as Beauty and Pain, and they offer a chance to feel them and experience them through their vision.

Religions fill this world with such a heavy and oppressive atmosphere to a point that they push artists to open windows between this world and another, offering a way not to suffocate. So, for us, it is not about how much art is influenced by religion, but how much art comes as a reaction to it. To religion or any other form of oppression and control.
