What is more relevant in terms of ones art. Is is the art itself, or is it the purpose and meaning behind the work of art. Perhaps the answer to this lies in what makes a work of art interesting to look at. When a work of art is devoid of purpose or intent, it tends to "look" and "be" nothing more than a technical feat of good drawing ability. Great art needs to be MORE than that! When any of the Great Masters created art, they put their entire self, their entire soul into their work. They were great artists and that was the purpose of their work. To create a great work of art. Work in which their very soul seems to eminate from. The "Divine" spiritual "meaning" behind some of these works also was very important. Perhaps some artists need to look within "themselves" to discover this type of spiritual purpose and meaning and incorporate it into their art.
