ART

When it comes to art, it’s important not to hide the madness.

Atticus

Art is something that goes beyond words, and in a fleeting sense captures something eternal and universal. And actually I think eternal and universal are the right words.

In that sense, I think the artist is nothing more than a filter of something eternal and universal. And that’s why art can communicate on a deep level.

Art is an expression of some metaphysical life force that we don’t have too many ways of approaching. That’s what makes art so valuable and important. It is vitality, in a pure sense.

That, at least, is my low-resolution image.

In a more everyday sense, I find it useful to think of art as a perspective: a way of looking at things, with a particular kind of attention.

Art is a very divine form, which you can enjoy no matter what level of skill you have. It is a way to define how you feel and your emotions. You can keep it to yourself, or show it to the world.

Your art defines you. It is your emotions, thoughts and feelings that go into a work of art.

Art is what makes life interesting. It’s what makes things worth looking at for more than a second. It is what gives things meaning beyond mere utility, and it is what allows us to talk about ideas that cannot be expressed in words. In that sense, it is one of the most important aspects of human activity.
