Why Art?

My immediate retort is "Why not art?"  If pacification is not yet achieved throughout the audience, then hopefully satisfaction can be found via this:  My answer is found in the first five words of the Bible - "In the beginning, God created..."  Before man, before woman, before the garden they would be seated in.  Further down that same first page of the Good Book, Genesis 1:27 proclaims; "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them."  We are created, embedded in the image of creation itself. To deny our desire, our need, our mandate to create, is to deny the very nature of God. So I create. The stage is my medium. – Matt Lukasiewicz
