Sean Ludwig: Artist's Statement

With the rise of ignorance, and the fall of intelligence and common sense, comes an age of uninformed guesswork and uncertainty. Fear is the natural response to scare tactics on the news, and failure is the mentality engrained into this nation’s youth and working class. Artists can be either oblivious to such a trend, or take it as an opportunity to snap their viewers out of the illusion of hopelessness. This marks a time for the artist to take on the opposite roll of “the boy who cried wolf”; it is a time to deny popular opinion, the media, and the government the ability to blindfold the majority of the public from the real problems and issues that need to be resolved. Artists must assume the character of the teacher, the healer, and the thinker to avoid being swallowed by mass hysteria.
