artistry that exploits; Wendell Berry and the Fashionably New

“It should be fairly clear that a culture has taken a downward step when it forsakes the always difficult artistry that renews what is neither new nor old and replaces it with an artistry that merely exploits what is fashionably or adventitiously ‘new,’ or merely displays the ‘originality’ of the artist.”

-Wendell Berry
