20th century art critics have removed the core of courage, inherent in all great art, through ridiculing its emotional investment, according to Bram Djikstra. To invest concrete, emotional subjectivity in art is always to take a risk.

Art has become more depending on her critic than on her artist, for raw material.
If there is no emotional content, then what is left? Well, a void that is not a living, emotional emptiness, but a dead vacuum, without hope for neither reincarnation or resurrection.
