Positive projection of art if only indirectly…

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

to share

through the process of creative honesty !!

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
