Is Art important and why?
Because is can rise above the petty and the mundame and make the spirit soar. It gives a picture of your spirit, the very deepest essence of who you are.
Art serves a human purpose. Art is a blindly fast summation of your beliefs, hopes and dreams. If you are an artist art is: a “selective re-creation of reality according to an artist’s metaphysical value-judgments,”. That means you show everything about yourself when create art. If you are using art, -watching, listening, you are judging how the art fits your personal values. Every time you collide with art your essential views are exposed. Art answers your question: What is my life about? The art you enjoy is you personal answer.
