Is all art about the artist I wonder?
Let me not burst your dreams asunder.
Is the artist singing me, me, me as he tells his history?
He may be a she.
Its all about perception, am I right?
What the artist saw and heard in plain sight.
Nature or nurture, the argument drags on.
For a while we’re here, then gone.
The artist’s way of looking at things and what he saw.
Is objectivity against the law?
Skill has a part to play but that’s for another day.
Some tell a story well, others go to Hell.
A flower, plant, a tree as seen by me.
The Mona Lisa too, on view.
Art is about everything, the artist’s mood.
Celebrating the nude.
The nude symbolises truth, stands bare.
We stand and stare.
Art tells us what is there.
Art or artist, which comes first?
Great art shall slake your thirst.
Art and artist are at one with all.
Big and small.
