a larger call for artists . . .
The early artists were equated with the shamans, the revealers, the healers, those who attended to the larger and deeper questions -
We are beyond ‘shock & awe’ - it’s a tired formula now that every six-year old can watch rape, mayhem, war crimes on the internet – not to mention the hapless antics of the neighbor next door . . .
What would be extraordinary is for artists to rise to a new calling and find a new language for image-making in a new dimension – one that makes some larger connection and meaningfulness out of what is otherwise a massive outpouring of separated images, words, feelings, . . . all crying to be heard.
I try to do that with my DIMONscapes®.
