Blog: Difference in the Arts
Posted on October 18 2018
Being an artist for most of my life I find it hard to understand the notion of equal. Again if all things are equal then there is no difference. So it is not easy for me to relate to this notion of social equality. It is not hard for me to understand that it is important to reach out and help another in need – but that doesn’t mean they are equal to or should eventually be like me my individuality and uniqueness. They are free to try to make their uniqueness shine, but they can’t take my glorious shimmer and apply it to themselves, I can’t make them equal to me and my uniqueness but they can create their own uniqueness and shimmer. That is difference that is what art is all about – and that is what finding the self is all about. I can’t create you, I can’t create a work of art and let you call it your work – it just doesn’t work that way.
So find your shimmer, find your difference, find your uniqueness and look for it when you are looking at an object that is labeled art. Always search for you golden nuggets.
