Jim Woods recently posted a short, thought-provoking post Is There Good Art and Bad Art.
It got me all riled up. Here’s how I responded to his post:
In a world of numb, art makes us feel and think. As to good or bad, it’s not a good question for art.
Art isn’t math. It’s not formulaic and simple.
It’s as complex as an emotion.
And are emotions good or bad?
It’s a discussion that could go on and on…
As creatives, we make people feel again.
We bring life to the lifeless.
We awaken thought to the thoughtless.
We kindle smoking embers in those who feel their dreams are dying.
Our efforts are good.
Your life, your creativity and your contributions matter.
Don’t let the question of good or bad keep you from moving forward. Someone needs what on you can offer.
And they need it today.
