Art is Pointless

art is pointless
as pointless as a daisy in a field of green
backed up by a clear blue sky

as pointless as a freshly washed kitchen floor

Suffering from a prolonged bought of "what's the use", this message woke me in the middle of the night, and was there again to greet me in the morning.

pointlessness plus our inexplicable need for art and beauty is the source of power.
Creation beyond reason.

Your posts are resonating with me. I want to pursue my fiber interest and pursue a new interest in tapestry but can't help but think why? It doesn't matter.

Michiele,
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. It certainly took me a long time to come to this understanding. At least in my bones.
This helps to move me past the art vs craft debate that I am thoroughly tired of, now I am more concerned with that spark of art for arts sake. Not matter the form it takes.
