Art is Everything, Art is Life
Dare to be inspired and strive to create is the challenge set down in this volume by poet and artist, Cormac Baker. Tales of heroism and history combine to demonstrate how art can be found in everything and everything that we live and do can serve as inspiration, thus aiding our efforts to interpret and re-interpret the world anew.
Such views offer fresh insight, alongside new and invigorating ways to look at common and mundane things, drawing inspiration too from those who went before us: folk heroes, such as Robin Hood, luminaries and visionaries, such as Leonardo da Vinci or Nostradamus, forgotten figures and unresolved tragedies of history, such as Richard III of England or the Jack the Ripper victims.
Art teaches us how to live, "sending amateurs and orators a new way to observe." Keeping art alive shows us how to appreciate the world; it gives us the will to live.
