Art Is A Mirror

“A mirror will reflect all things perfectly, whether they are beautiful or ugly; it never refuses to show a thing, nor does it retain the thing after it is gone. The mind should be as open as this.” -Lin Ching-hsi

One of the great reasons for art is that it’s a mirror. We can hold it up to ourselves and the world and regardless of whether we like the image reflected back, it tells the truth.

The decision to act or make a change based on this truth is entirely up to us.
