Reflection for today…Art Is A Question Mark -Marilyn Manson

8 Apr

“Art is a question mark,

not an answer.”

Marilyn Manson

David Lynch & Marilyn Manson sharing a happy moment…

David Lynch & Marilyn Manson share a love of darkness explored in art…
They are also both painters and musicians.

In this clip, Marilyn Manson discusses art and its relationship to spirituality and politics.

{Side Note…I would have loved to have Marilyn Manson as a teacher when I was in school.

I am sure that I would learn so much from him}.

*

Manson thinks that “art is far more important than politics.”

For him art is the closest thing that can be religious because he likens God with the creative component of art.

Art is his spirituality.

He respects religion but he disagrees with the way in which religion has been used to manipulate people and limit their intellectual curiosity.

Marilyn Manson Religion

{My guess would be that he is more in favor of independent thinking and critical analysis}.

*

Manson believes that the role of the artist in society is to affect people.

He says that art is your response.

This reminds me of David Lynch not wanting to explain his films.

David feels that each viewer should come up with their own artistic interpretation based on their own experience with the film.

Do you agree or disagree with Marilyn Manson?

Why or why not?

    1. Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.

    2. Manson thinks that “art if far more important than politics.” … “art IS far …”

    3. I recently asked a dear person: “Here’s a freaky one: Do you reckon every question we ask is actually the answer?” Do you?

      Slayer Muser…
      1. I will take your word that “absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.”



      2. Thank you for pointing out the typo…
      “Art is far more important than politics.”

      3. Cool question- very esoteric.
      Perhaps the question is the answer in the same vein that the problem can also be the solution.

        1. Cool pics.

        2. No worries.

        3. You didn’t have to answer the question! If what I asked is correct, I knew the answer! But I like your… let’s call them “comments”. I agree. I once heard or read that problems are actually solutions in disguise. I also remember this from Albert Einstein: “When the solution is simple, God is answering.”
