Technology is encroaching on the visiual arts. The fast pace of life is even faster because of all of the screentime people are involved in.
People don't take the time to look at works of arts the way they used to.
This is my observation. People rush around like crazy.
I have had artists mention that they have been in homes, where there
were flatscreen television sets on every wall.
So paintings do not get much space in these situations.
There's a lot of competition for people's attention these days.
I think the visual arts will have a difficult time in th future.
