    schema:description ""The American video and installation artist Bill Viola is one of the most popular artists in the world today. Significatnly, at a time when an artist's importance is oftern conferred by small groups of experts and cognoscenti, Viola's rich imagery touches a nerve with large international audiences. His is an art of everyman; work that is profoundly spiritual and never afraid to make the big statement. That statement is often about human life and its relation to the universe, to the soul and human spirit, to nature and to death. Viola is one of those rare artist whose work makes us awae of our nature as human beings. He returns art to what were once it fundamental concerns: he gives it a relevance to the emotional and spiritual lives of ordinary people. But Viola's art is also an art of our own time: despite this interest in 'old-fashioned' values, this work is produced with the most innovative, most modern of media." - back cover."@en ;
