Art as Catalyst

Art could act as a catalyst to help one overcome deterministic imprisonment within one’s conditioned circumstances. Art, in so far as it involves opening of the heart and mind, embodies freedom. This type of art often presents unique or unusual images, which at first could baffle the viewer. Often the baffled viewer reacts with frustration and irritation, spurning the possibility to open up to something new.

An artist could snuggle securely under the blankets of tradition, where one could perpetuate the predictable. Such art is soothing to ignorance and ingratiating towards power. Maybe it doesn't matter. Maybe the main thing is to have fun.
