Its about devoting ur passion, ur soul, ur mind, ur feelings, ur thoughts and crunching that power of concentration into a single moment on a piece of canvas, into that index finger on the shutter button, into ur master arm holding the chisel facing the block of wood/bronze/aluminium/titanium/whatever, into the 2 hands moulding the single ceramic piece, into a single firey moment to create The One Piece which everyone would recognise instantly as a hallmark of ur full power all concentrated into a single source.
Yes, THAT, my friend, IS Art.
Unfortunately, in this materialistic & pragmatic world where money drives the daily aspect of our lives, where it seeps in deep to the fabric of our very lives, society & mindset. Ppl hold the most unfortunate notion that Art is only for the wealthy, rich & powerful to enjoy. These ppl can BUY Art, but how much would they know and appreciate it is another business.
Art is never about buying, but appreciating & recognising the effort made on the other end.
