A friend of mine asked me to write about the following:
Art is NOT–
and so I wrote the following:
Art is shades of a world like our own, but giving us a glimpse of the world to come.
Art is NOT pure (at least not anymore). Art has become a luxury, and artists have become profiteers. In tough economic times, people are spending less, yet being entertained more. See: film grosses over the last year. Art is escapism, not a companion piece that reflects realism. Sooner or later, artist will reemerge into a “neo-renaissance” era that won’t be politically, socially, or agenda driven. It will reflect the heart of man, undefiled, and reveal who we really are–sinners in the hands of an angry GOD.
