Queries, Queries and More Queries...

How do you see art? What's your perspective? How does art affect one's life or the life of others? How is the future going to be for our children? Recently Connie Solera, a beautiful soul-artist - as I would like to call her, wrote something about it which I could really connect to. O for that matter, I connect with everything she says...I feel we are on the same 'wavelength' as they say it...only she expresses things amazingly well!

We artists create...when we create do we always think of others?! Do we think of how it's going to be perceived or affect the world? Will it really change the perception of people? There has of course been such striking works of the Masters that has left an indelible mark on the world (That happens rarely!!!)! But we - the layman artists - can we change the world perception? With all that is happening around, is it our task or is it simply a calling or do we seriously need to engage in it? All these questions keep popping up now and then as the situation gets worse and is moving towards worst in most cases!

The only answer perhaps is that art heals at least some souls...souls that would want to get healed! They do engage in art and create art to heal oneself and others. They form their tribe to nourish and sustain a greater calling. How beautiful, is it not! Cynics may call it escapism but is it, really? That's again Perception! If there is any inner peace that one may experience through art...and if it is felt by as many souls as possible...would there be any chance of lesser violence and pain thereby!? Touching lives through whatever one does...

Today, I am leaving you with queries to ponder on... (I know almost all of us query ourselves at some point or the other...)

I believe artists have a responsibility to make a difference through their artwork. However, it will also be therapeutic for him/her as he/she allows him/herself to get lost in its making. Blessings!

Wonderful post. I think artists at some level are always thinking about how their art will affect the viewers. I really love this piece of yours this week. The colors and subject of it.

Beautiful painting!! I paint because I have too... I care more that my words affect others more than my art. I do however hope my art will bring a smile or a giggle. I need to be one with colour...that is all I know for sure!! Great questions I may have to blog the answer one day!!

Hugs Giggles
