Why has society abandoned the true artist? Is truth ultimately as repellent as those who attempt to emulate it?

Kirsty Heggie, 29

What happens to people who live on the Fringes of Society? The true artist who express themselves quietly, subtly and operate out with the consumer/ commodity version of art. The truly beautiful things seem to gather dust as the public idealise the shiny, accessible, disposable art of today. Artists were once revered as Sages and yet they are ignored and discarded by the mainstream today.

Many of the purest souls on this planet capable of enlightening us are vulnerable and fragile, they are lost in the mental health systems that cannot support nor understand them and shunned by a society that prefers distraction and mindless entertainment to beauty, honesty and integrity.
