Something I am studying about right now is the importance of Beauty, one of the facets of human experience. We are in a rapid decline for the appreciation and fostering of beauty, and I believe it to be one of the qualities we need in our lives to culture and preserve the good in everyone. An example of this is how casual and visceral art is becoming. Consider subject matter, movies, TV, etc. I understand that society changes – it has since the beginning of time. What I am seeing is a blatant disregard for beauty, kindness and respect. Viewing beauty can be a completely uplifting experience. As artists, we have a need to be expressing beauty in some way, to be kept and savored forever.
The need for beauty applies to all of us, not just the artists. Our children need to experience beauty to know that it is there and that they can call upon it to balance their lives. Adults need beauty for the same reason. How can we cope with difficulties that life presents to us without beauty? We go to the woods to find beauty and peace. We pause to smell a flower or view a sunset. We go horseback riding, We bake cookies for a friend. To add beauty to our lives takes a little extra time. We have to slow down and consider it, or it is lost. Something even better happens when we focus on beauty (rather on what is harsh, ugly and hurtful). We become beauty ourselves.
