I believe all great art is transformative in that it inspires the beholder and enriches the society in which it is created. Undoubtedly, great artists are themselves charged and quickened in the process of working. Dylan Thomas wrote,

Therefore, we are challenged to find in new art the nucleus of spiritual awakening which can fire, astonish, and transform us with wonder and the need to create.
