Art will always be something that is equally uplifting yet depressing. It is uplifting because it's the only way to cleanse our emotions. This is called catharsis. Whatever hurt we are going through can only be justified by art. For some, art can bring out all negative emotions when associated with a traumatic or nostalgic memory. So there will always be people who will fear having to deal with any art. It is perfectly understandable. They will hide any sign of anything seemingly artistic from their system.
