Artists and art

For an artist, a painting, a photograph, or a sculpture is a work of art, of imagination, of talent, and of passion. For an artist of visual arts, the joy is in making the work aesthetically pleasing. For an artist of literary art, the joy is in making the work intellectually pleasing. An artist doesn’t understand why a subject can be forbidden or why a piece of imagination can be offensive. For many non-artists, many things are offensive, or sacred, or forbidden to be depicted by artists. Well, it is the artists, not the non-artists, who leave behind work that are seared in our brains.
