Art is not self-centered

One of the most damning beliefs perpetrated by our culture is the idea that our art is a self-indulgent pursuit. Our gifts come from a divine source, and using our gifts moves us toward our divinity. This is not selfish. It is our poisonous playmates who try to convince us that art is a self-centered pursuit.

What they are really saying is “focus on me, not your art.”

Now that is self-centered.
