THOUGHT IS THE BEARER OF ART
Art is only art, and is not influenced by thoughts. Art works and art forms shine in the changing sea of thoughts. Art exists in the space outside thoughts...

... When art exists in various concrete forms, I call it existential art.
Thought is self-suffcient and free; it does not need art, though it can analyze, explain and express art...

... So ever changing thought is the best bearer of art, Art itself is self-suffcient and art has no virtue...

... If you say, art is self-suffcient; the swirl of thouging is not needed anymore...

... Art is shining from afar. Mind and thought search ceaselessly for art, and the existence of art can be best bore and materialize through expressed thoughts...

... Art strolls in thought. Thought gives art the earth and environment, and various properties for its existence...

... The resulting elaborated art form makes humans understand art better.
All in all, thought is at most a or tool for art.
Liu Shuishi

Precious words converge to gold-like language
Language is as valuable as fossils
Look, artist is starring at the bright and flashing works
Growling back to the longing shouting

The independent was threw by desires to another light
And the spirit leads them to keep silence in the gold
Thanks, thanks…
Liu Shuishi
