re: Winter Topic: Art and Social Issues
I strongly believe in using art to discuss Social Issues. Its a form that can teach people in the most receptive manner. As artists we can teach, but also give the viewer a space to form their own opinion. You add another layer of deminsion to your work when your image speaks to the viewer. I'm not saying it should be a clear message, because you lose richness in your work that way, but your work should definitely have a larger purpose.
