Imagine life without the creation of colors on canvas that come alive, or conjuring sounds that soothe the ears, or word formations that contribute to art itself. Just imagine…. It is impossible – to imagine. Art’s many forms go beyond expression. It is life within life.
Greater than a masterpiece of an exhibition, it is countless with its expressions and endless with its meanings. Art is not limited to painting, sculpting, or even writing, but it is so expansive in various mediums that it is influential to all. With its array of mediums and artists we should appreciate it. Art is love.
A continuum that will never cease, it is always innovative and inventive.Thankfully, artists from the beginning until now have contributed their thoughts through their work to continue the legacy of art [life] so that we can keep relishing the form of life. Some we can credit are Jean-Michel Basquait (American Artist[neo-expressionist] December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988), John “Trane” Coltrane (American Jazz Artist [saxophonist], September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967), and Michael Eric Dyson (American Writer, October 23, 1958 – Present). All give us life along with others.
Without art the world would not thrive with such beautiful complexity. It talks to us in all shapes and forms. It is an unlimited arena that lives and transcends to higher grounds. It can only be appreciated and admired, and never denied. Art is life and life is art.
