Keep Art, About Art.
When we judge art based on the identity of the artist, we risk allowing our biases and preconceptions to influence our evaluation of the artwork. We might, for example, be more likely to appreciate a piece of art created by a famous or well-respected artist, even if the artwork itself is not particularly impressive. Similarly, we might be less likely to appreciate a piece of art created by an unknown or controversial artist, even if the artwork is masterful.
To truly appreciate art for what it is, we must be willing to set aside our biases and focus solely on the artwork itself. By doing this, we can gain a deeper appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the artwork, and allow it to speak to us on its own terms. This is my protest, this is why I am anonymous. Keep art about art.
Art and Mental Health
I am also a huge advocate of mental health. My art is my outlet and helps me so much with my own struggles at times, this has lead me to passionately want to inspire others to do the same. The process of creating art allows individuals to express themselves authentically, without the need for words or explanation. Through art therapy, individuals can develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their experiences, and their emotions. By connecting with their authentic selves, they can gain greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, which can lead to healing and personal growth.
