We can’t help ourselves
July 26, 2013
Talking about art almost always makes me want to ‘upchuck’. There are people (either cynically or naively) who make a living excavating the profundities of the art experience. (Reviewers or grad students.) They are like people looking for diamonds or cancer. They are trying to sell you a package. “Art is worthwhile. Its in your best interests.”
Art for human beings is as fundamental as breathing, eating, or farting. We can’t help ourselves.
