This is my response to The Basic Big Problem With Most Art by Mat Gleason
I read his criticism based on his knowledge and insights of art, but what I saw between the lines of his writing was a truthful alternative possibility. Instead.; A projection of what exceptional art is. By saying what he did not like about art and artists; he affirms indirectly what artists and art should inspire towards.
Engaged in the community
With humanity and/or nature
To be one with a vision beyond the sleeping
Awake as an artist and as a creative writer
To be sensitive,
to inspire this in others
to awaken others to the extramundane
deep in their longing hearts
through the process of creative honesty !!
