OUR STANDPOINTS AND QUESTIONS


If one is concerned with the style of frames on a painting, for example, if they are modern or not in style, is that relevant to the world today?

It is not because a form is modern in style that is true in the spirit, but if an art is timeless, the other way around is true.
If a work is true and beautiful in spirit and form, it is always actual.

I am not prejudicing a work because it is modern. That is in fact the meaning of my Abstract Waterforms 1 video, to convey how abstract can be an aspect of nature, and a work based on abstract forms like this, can be spiritual in the sense that it can help people to see what is.
See the overwhelming beauty and richness we have in nature, which the world is destroying if it does not see.

Can you guarantee me that modern art is not prejudicing fine spiritual works ( like those of Myriam Vandenberghe), simply because they are not modern in style??

Is it relevant to the world, for example, a work , even if modern in style, when it only adds to the existing pollution and insensibility, producing cloacas, for example, excrements out of good food, as art, in a world where people are dying of hunger, or tattooing pigs in a world animals like these live in dungeons only for consumption, is this more spiritual and relevant to the world today?

I am here to listen and try to understand, because as I see, for someone to label a work which expresses a profound state of communion with nature and life as a 'mere decoration', simply because it is not modern in style, is indeed an unfair, tragic-comic projection.

A true, just or kind spirit is still good, without a form. But what is a form, however modern, without a true spirit?

If a work is about form, or a style, and never mind the spirit, the justice, the truth, never mind the health the life, or the peace in this world, even if it is modern, is it relevant contemporary art?

Without the sensibility which true love gives to us, is any work relevant to the world?

When a true spirit takes form, no matter the style, it is art.

Once I heard the question: -" Can Art save the world ?".

What can save the world is not a matter of taste but of consciousness.
Not a mode, a style of Art, but to unite a true, kind and just spirit in action, in whatever work we do. To be humble enough to see what is, and not prejudge anyone, anything; not even out of belief.

There is nothing substantially new in a work of art, or revolution, when you substitute one vanity of power for another, one prejudice for another.
