156. Art From the Point of View of an Artist | Amy Mastrine Interview

I sat down to chat with Amy Mastrine, a talented artist, about her work and the state of art today. Beauty and art are essential to culture. When the arts decay, so does the culture. And in our culture, it’s hard to argue our arts are in a good place. Luckily, there are talented artists like Amy fighting to create a culture of beauty.

An artist’s look at art

Artists don’t always have the ability to analyze the full meaning of their art. But, they are capable of analyzing the beauty and form of art. Thats why I looked for someone who was not only a talented artist, but a sharp thinker as well.

Artists can see things a layman doesn’t. Instead of just offering my opinion on the arts, I asked an artist for her thoughts to call on her expertise. My goal of this conversation was to learn more about what it takes to create beautiful art and the obstacles facing those who try to do that.

“Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.”

Winston Churchill

The current state of art:

We covered a lot of ground in this interview. Firstly, we looked into many of the problems holding artists back. Then, we dove into the importance of art and the relationship between art and culture. Moreover, we discussed how Amy, and other artists, are going back to the old methods with a new twist. This, I believe, is where we can begin to go back to true art that lifts the soul. For my fellow Roger Scruton fans, we discussed his thoughts on beauty and aesthetics as well.

More about the artist:

Amy Mastrine is an artist interested in mysticism, beauty, and truth. Amy was born in western Pennsylvania, and her last name is Italian for “master of a trade or craft.” Her style has been described as feminine, whimsical, and representational. Amy’s work is intended to honor the divine and sacred. You can find her on Instagram, Twitter, and her shop.

174. Reviving Traditional Art Conversation of Our Generation

I recently sat down with Amy Mastrine, an artist who works in traditional mediums, to talk about the state of art. Finding a way to create new iterations of traditional art is something that would go a long way for our culture. Because I enjoyed this conversation, I wanted to revisit some of the great insights to discuss them more. Amy offered a lot of interesting ideas, so I thought it would be good to elaborate and offer my thoughts. Also, I've thought about doing this for some of my other interviews, so if you enjoy this, let me know! And, if there's anyone I should interview, let me know here. "Culture is the arts elevated to a set of beliefs." -Thomas Wolfe The Beauty of Traditional Art Digital art lacks soul in some way. There are a lot of great things happening in digital art. For instance, video games are creating incredible scenes. Despite the beauty one can create with digital art, there is something irreplaceable about traditional art. https://youtu.be/hhDScD6qTPE Beauty is Objective Beauty is an objective reality. Although many people will argue it is subjective, it is an objective reality. However, people who argue for the subjectivity of beauty touch on something true. Because beauty is an abstraction, it does require a subject to observe it. https://youtu.be/TVPVgHa1Dx8 The highest form of art What is the highest form of art? Is it painting, sculpting, or stained glass? In this interview, Amy called architecture the highest form of art, and I agree. Although architecture isn't often thought of as art, I would say it is. In my opinion, art is creating beauty in an expressive way. Despite not being expressive in the same way, architecture does have this relationship to people because it is how we live.

I learned to love at the same time." -Claude Monet — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
