All creative art cannot be reduced to flatly describe the world in which you live, to make it a faithful photograph, a flawless double. It would be incomplete, since the image of the world would only reflect a frozen quadrant of its reality. It would be a kind of basic language, without flavor, a pale imitation of life.
Creative art’s role is to nurture life in its slightest gestations, first for the fun of creating itself, but also to propel your look further, to boost life impulses and desires in their creative and inventive genius . To create is to set in motion and give rise to constantly renewed possibilities . And when this powerful implementation, this inventiveness and wealth are deployed around the idea of meaning, of the human being and the world, then creative art has produced a masterpiece.
