The Message in the Medium

I was asked by a young student whether it is the role of an artist to communicate their innermost meditations on the nature of beauty through personal expression, or function solely as a conduit to a Higher Power and struggle to be that Power’s voice?
I asked him what he thought. Then I interrupted him before he could speak, just to mess with him.
“Neither,” I insisted, “An artist’s role is to communicate.”
“But communicate Beauty?”
“Hell yes, and what’s more beautiful than super hot Roller Derby chicks and cheap burgers and beer?! Now lighten up and help me colour this poster…”
