Artistic Responsibility

If literature can offer a way out of a mess rather than just relating a mess, then art is taken to a higher level. Art imitating life isn’t enough. If art offers a way out of a morass be it human, conceptual, moral etc. when it is bold enough to offer its own solutions, however imaginative, it offers a glimmer of hope to a practical resolution in the future. Art, beyond escapism that offers a solution to particular issues that fascinate the artist, should resonate in some way with its audience.
