I’d love for there to be more explicitly conservative or right-leaning artists.
(Saying this without skin in the game, I know.)
But the gloves are now off.
If an entity declares itself for the right, the left-leaning support structure disappears.
This has been made clear by all the people getting kicked off PayPal, CloudFlare, domain registrars, etc.
Galleries are run by leftists.
Art directors are leftists.
The press is made up of leftists.
So to ask an artist to declare a side is asking them for the entire conventional source of promotion and income to dry up.
Is the right capable of supporting artists like this?
It’s one thing to establish the infrastructure, as Pax Dickinson has been discussing.
Infrastructure allows people the chance to sell their wares.
But will people buy?
That is a question.
