Plato’s Philosophy of Art

     I just do not agree with Plato’s philosophy of art.
     Plato says that, just as nature is a reflection of the Forms, art is a reflection of nature.  So art is twice removed from the Forms.
     To me, art is like a highway to what is transcendently real.  I agree with Plato that what is transcendent is more true than what is visible.  I agree that there are Forms–absolutely.  But art is like a wormhole to the Forms.  Art shows us what the world is like and who we are better than just looking around does.
    Good art does, that is.
