We will start with the first question: why do people pursue art that evokes negative things that evoke such emotions? The emotions include sadness, pity, heartache, feelings and loneliness, disappointments, guilt shame and regret.
How many times have you tried to bottle up or mask sadness? Ever since we were little, society has told us that we can't afford to be said. Society teaches us happiness the only desirable, healthy emotion. but of course, sadness is an emotion with antagonistic thoughts and value. When if we turn it into an emotion that does something positive to us? Acknowledging sadness is hard, but what if we did it and learned from it? Instead of bottling it up, we can give it some space. Sadness is different from depression. When you allow your sadness to emit out. It never whirls to depression. There is a huge difference between sadness and depression. It is not similar to one another. It can be dealt with differently. Controlling tears doesn't work well many times. Pumping tears may also don't works. Controlling tears never make us strong or steel body. It is all about the act of being true to our feelings and it connects us with others. If a person carries sadness with them, they are not the ugliest. One who smiles at their sadness, keep it aside and walk away from it, is the smartest.
The melancholy mood turns us into a better artist. An opportunity to did deeper allow us to our rawest emotions. Good art is messy and there is an underlying sadness in all art. All the sadness and failure trying to remind us, we are not done yet. What a beautifulness this life is. Beautiful and broken and begging to be redeemed. And for those who are listening, this is a truth that resonates. The point is not about, all the art is sad but every sad is art. Things are wonderful, true and yes even a little sad. You need not have to wear your underwear on your head to prove that you wear underwear. Likewise, you need not mention sadness, in all your art. Everything has its purpose to exist. Someone's for pain, suffering and ugliness of life. We create a culture, that mostly responds to the exaggeration of beauty and the ugly. Every one goes what they need if you need messy to validate your experience and emotions, it isn't a qualifier or a definition of what makes art great, in the end when you look at art and you like it, you are looking at a mirror.
The art that disturbs the comfortable. It is a diverse range from hate to love, sadness to elation, fear to hope, that's its magic.
If you are an artist ( you are probably are) if you create or consume creative things- I hope you face this fact.💟
