art: imagining utopia

art: imagining utopia

The objective of art is to allow the artist to imagine scenarios and perspectives that are comforting or nostalgic.

The only way to define art is to suggest that a work of art is intellectually or emotionally intended to be comforting or nostalgic to the artist.

The legacy of art is to transform the human imagination to emotional places where a human being can fantasize about self-improvement beauty and hence utopia.

Do these fancy considerations reflect the youthful marketability of the fantasy-empathetic Hollywood (USA) movie "Secret Admirer" (1985)?

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
