Comments Off on Art Is the Newly Sprung River That Keeps Flowing at Its Own Pace

Art is the newly sprung river that keeps flowing at its own pace, based on its own unconditional knacks, passion, and its nature. Nature itself is art, and as such, art can be found in everything that belongs to nature. And in the world we live, there is nothing that doesn’t belong to nature, for everything is nature, hence, everything is art. Even science is art, when it flows pure and free – literature is art, when it flows pure and free – mathematics is art, when it flows pure and free. Any act of the mind that flows pure and free, is art, for freedom is the soul of art.

~ Abhijit Naskar
