The role of the artists

I came to see that the human imagination is not paramount in the creative process: that what is paramount is “The Creation” and He who created it and that what the true artist is expressing is not himself but his response to this eternal continuing process of Creation … I believe that, in the humblest way, we are collaborators on Earth in God’s continuing Act of Creation, and that this is the role of the artist in Society.
