The article presents the author's comment concerning the issue raised by Dr. Warren H. Anderson on the differences between art consciousness and routine and operational qualities. She disagrees with Anderson's idea that a contemporary artist performs in isolation from his society's values. However, she asserts that the artist obtains the character of uniqueness in the selection of their subject. She denotes that the claim of Anderson that the artists neglect to participate in the destruction of the disproportionate aesthetic values depicts the latter's incapability of affecting change within the society.
