New art is not always good art, but good art is always new art.

New art is not always good art, but good art is always new art.

An art writer once wrote that “stale artifacts of the past” are “irrelevant” because they are not “active components of the present moment.”

But “stale artifacts of the past” are always “active components of the present moment” when they are experienced in the present moment. To an art historian, a Giotto is a 14th century painting. To an art lover it was painted yesterday.

Art is either good or not. Relevance has nothing to do with it.
