Short Thoughts – The purpose of art is?

Sometimes I wonder what the purpose of making art is. It can be tough for artists that have not found their audience to maintain enthusiasm for their art practice, and I’d have to put myself into such a category. An audience can enrich the process of making art because it gives the art a purpose, that of being shared, seen and experienced. In my opinion, and this is also my ambition, I think art and artists should be inspirational experiences and people. To try to rise above the mundane, using art as a vehicle. Art and artists can intimate something uplifting that is beyond the humdrum routines we become easily trapped by. What the ‘message’ is, is of questionable importance. It is the encouragement to change ones views, to believe in life again, to listen to the call to come alive.
