Art is Important


Inspired by a fellow mind-blogger, UK patriot and art philosopher, I reflected on the medium. Art, I thought, ahem, deeply to myself, is an important thing, it reflects the value and belief of the people who make it. It's sacramental if you like, "an outward and visible sign of an inward or spiritual grace" or lack thereof.

Good Art

And "lack" is just it. Today's art, if it even bears the name, is mostly utter, total rubbish. Worse than that, it actively works to tear down and destroy our aesthetic sense; as materialism attempts to destroy spiritual values such as love, truth and honor, modern art attempts to destroy our sense of the beautiful and true. It is therefore hideous, degenerate and perverse. This assault on our senses is fittingly embraced by satans like the Podestas and Marina Abramovic.

Bad Art

Have you noticed how much this so-called art costs? You have to be very wealthy to afford it. Now consider Satan's deceit. Surround yourself, in your elite monied sophistication, with visual images which degrade and spit on everything that's right and true, which spit on you. And while you're at it, congratulate yourself on your aesthetic brilliance, so far above the common men you hate, as you hate all life, perhaps even your own. 

Good Art

What a vicious trick! Look at us, so wealthy, so privileged, so surrounded by hideousness. "What," says Our Lord, "shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul." Exactly.

Bad Art

We, on the other hand, who value life, truth, beauty and freedom under God, look to art which reflects those values. We believe in spiritual, non-material truth and the beauty of it.

Good Art

This, gentle readers, will win out, we are assured of that.

Mrs. and I went to Espana in 2017, and spent a day wandering the Prado, mostly gob-smacked.

And then there's this guy, a little closer to home:

The way modern art works is the 'artiste' suckers some powerful/rich/powerfully rich idiot to buy said artwork and thus everyone else has to keep up with Mr./Mrs Elitist Butthead.

Been that way since the days of Good Art. Patronage and all that.

My problem is when modern artists smack on medieval artists for not having proportions and figures right, while producing udder garbage. Love to smack those elitist poppinjays right between their walnut-sized brains.

Or as Andy Warhol was fond of saying: "Art is anything you can get away with".

Amen, Parson.
You all be safe and God bless.

Good art calls out things that are not evident in the art.

Knock knock
who's there?
Art's not here

The Prado's something else, Wild, then there's Bluebonnets, beautiful!

LSP said...

Totally agree on the medieval thing, Wild, they demonstrate their ignorance.

Viz. Patronage: Corrupt, degenerate, satanic fools pay for paintings, buildings and sculpture which reflects themselves. Just look at the result.

What utter hideousness we're surrounded by and that's wrong, really wrong.

LSP said...

drjim, did you know Warhol was a Mass going Catholic? Huh. So was Jack Kerouac.

LSP said...

And with thy spirit, Linda.

LSP said...

I love that, RHT, good art.

LSP said...

Exactly, Ritchie.
