This remarkable book introduces the reader to Centripetal Art: art that seeks the center of the self in order to encounter divine presence there. This kind of art was born out of the life experience of JUNKO CHODOS. It rejects the cynicism and hype of the post-modern period, a period during which detachment from universal values was elevated to a principle. As the postmodern period experiences its death throes, Centripetal Art affirms universal values -- but not the values that counted as "universal" in western societies right through the early decades of the 20th century. For the centripetal artist, divine presence is something beyond gender, beyond ethnicity, and beyond dogma.
