Our current art is ravaged

The lack of standards in our modern life, or rather our current standards derived almost solely from economics, is ravaging the environment, ecologies, agriculture and urban design. So too our current art is ravaged, showing us disease instead of health, superficiality instead of transcendence and ugliness instead of beauty.

Ian Roberts, Creative Authenticity

This isn’t the full picture, of course, but it does resonate with me for a lot of contemporary art I see.
