Thoughts on Art

Art is a connection powered by thought.
Art is deep consideration of an artist’s message.
Art is the recovery of a memory.
Art is the joy of discovery.
Art is the quiet thrill of contemplation.
Art is an escape from our everyday lives.

Delve deep into the significance of art.

There are no easy answers as to what art means.
Art challenges perceptions.
Art illuminates. Art provides beauty.
Art is on a higher plane than the common lives of humanity.
Art fills a need for transcendence.
Art has an aspirational quality.

Art is all about the human condition.

When asked to define poetry, I sometimes say, “It is poetry if you say it is poetry.”  The same could apply to art.  It is art if you say it is art.  It is very personal.
