Remember Your Reason
The function of an artist is not to make pretty little things; to amuse or divert.
The role of an artist is not to be a window; translucent or amicable.
Artists define our culture which is neither unbiased nor fair-minded.
Culture is political.
Artists give historical placement.
Artists are our extroverted connection to the world.
Artists are a direct reflection of social order.
The purpose of an artist is to be a mirror which forces society to take a good look at itself.
The responsibility of an artist is three-fold:
make the statement
this is who we are
ask the question
is this who we want to be
give the aspiration
this is who we can become
Art is immersion.
Art is critical reflection.
Art is action.
