Other artists, however, reveal an inner soul development during the course of their creative cycle, undeterred by prevailing trends. Then, the quest for meaning, religious topics and aesthetics come to the fore and stand in contrast to the youthful rebellious and uncontrolled excesses. Inasmuch artists experience inner spiritual transformation and are able to express this through their creative work, they can fulfill their life mission – therefore their vocation – through artwork. Comprehensive self-knowledge is a prerequisite for this pursuit. Hence, artists are able to make a conscious decision about whether they want to make a valuable contribution by designing something for their fellow beings, which is constructive, enriching, meaningful, aesthetic and uplifting.
“That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done; So there is nothing new under the sun.“ (Ecclesiastes 1: 9)
In a cloudless night, when we look at the starry sky, admire the sea surf on rocky cliffs at sunrise, or an imposing thundering tropical waterfall, then it is perfectly understandable that common ordinary art is not capable of competing with these natural beauties. Divine creation holds splendid beauty, provided our senses are trained to recognize it. Thus, it becomes obvious that the task of creative artists can not be rooted in aping the visible nature. Nevertheless, man is able to develop a skill to frame higher spiritual concepts through art.
