Lying Art

21 May

Art has the power to take pain, suffering, ugliness and chaos, and turn it all into something pleasurable, orderly, beautiful.

But isn’t there something wrong with that? What sort of thing gives pleasure by lying about unpleasurable things; worse still, by telling you it’s a lie?

Well, without art, as philosophers tell us, we would die of the truth.
