Default Re: ART to IMPACT the PSYCHE (not for the faint of heart)

Hey Tender,


I would just say that beauty is worth believing in! And it's a fine goal for an artist to seek to engender a feeling of beauty in his or her viewers (viewers if a visual artist). I would say there's nothing trite about that goal. Perhaps if enough minds are saturated with Beauty (in whatever form) there would be less desire to pour energy into strife. Also there's an "oceanic" feeling that comes with "beauty", and that tends to soften the embrace of the moment.

Yet as any creator must know, there are opportunity costs when choosing an intention or a creative direction. And some art screams, and some art whispers.
