Mako Fujimura on Christianity and Art

I just came across this Patrol Magazine Q & A with Japanese-American Christian artist Mako Fujimura.  The topics of discussion were, among other things, what makes art “Christian,” Jesus’ and the church fathers’ Eastern roots, the offensiveness of certain gospel events and characterizations in other cultures, Christianity and Zen, the role of orthodoxy in art, the distinction between icon and idol, and God as the source of all beauty.
