No One Owns Art !!

(Before I start.I would really like it if you commented and put forward your opinions on this topic)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. No one owns art. I feel like the only accessible art form in 2020 is music and film. To most the books are left to collect dust on a high shelf’s out of reach to many and great paintings are ruined by the coffee stains of the class divide. Literature like classical music and fox hunting seems to be a possession of the higher classes. Believe it or not I don’t hate the church. The elite built me aside from school and my parents I was raised by the church. The psalms of the bible and the verses of the hymns helped me create poetry and write prose. The summer clubs helped tutor and nurture me. However I wasn’t on the same level as them. My mother dusted the pews and scrubbed the toilets whist the conservative Christians preached the pure word of God towering above us on their high podium.

At school I was always degraded siting in a third set English class I was bitter , but I made friends I will never forget despite walking along the narrow tightrope that was the poverty line. Clutching a pen for balance , one slip and I would of tumbled to my doom. Perhaps I already have. in fact I know I have. What I write is in vain , they will spit on my grave.

Survival of the fittest is interwoven into our society despite anyone taking into account the middle classes head start at the game. Yet to say this puts a black mark against your name. Artwork is too expensive to buy for many , words to extravagant to understand. , and if your a woman who tires to challenge this you may as well thump your fists against a brick wall until they are bloody and bruised , but perhaps I’m biased. No one owns art. That’s all their is to say.

  1. Its a conundrum – I like to have nice stuff, but I can’t afford much, so I have to go along without mostly, its a problem. When I do get something I want, its hard to appreciate it properly, I can’t use special things the way a rich person would, I covet things, then throw them on the pile and lust after other things – no sophistication! 😮

  2. Artists have to eat. They need shelter. So most artists need a day job. I know I did. I love it when I get paid for my art. It took me years to realize and understand that giving it away is also tremendously satisfying. I still get paid sometimes and I still give it away. The work itself is what’s truly important, making it as best you can. The rest of it is just the rest of it.
