In my experience I have come to accept that the most primal need of every artist is that of communication. No matter the definition or style when art is misunderstood the pain hits hard on the artist in ways psychologists can only write about. Hence when we do art we try our best to portray what only our eyes see and try to bring into reality so that without explanation our art speaks for us and you now see what we saw. So yes beyond all the razzmatazz we all including the best of us are just trying to say something…
Now there lies my issue: if you are going to say something, let it be worth hearing or in the words of my friend Glofame ”keep shut and I’d have noticed you for your silence”.
Now I know you have things to say you believe are worth hearing but hold your horses. First, lets classify your message. If something is essentially correct you have just stated a fact but if something is universally and absolutely correct at all times it is then considered the TRUTH. Now since only one can boast of such wisdom, I make bold to say that the truth is what God says it is.
This is why we cannot afford to focus our attention on ourselves for only through Him can we deliver the truth about every issue of life. Whether we recognise it or not, whether we accept it or not we have a responsibility to feed the world with the truth through our art forms. We are today our generation’s Christs hence we have to make the truth heard in all the corners of the earth because everyday Jesus speaks truth
