Art Therapy

As I sit here looking at works of art from emering, established and expired (dead) artists I wonder:

Is art a form of therapy for the artist?

Is this why I often "don't get it"?

Do we always need to be exposed to the artists' problems?

What transforms the therapy "piece" into art?

Do you have to be educated in the latest arts trends to understand it?

Are artists and art essential to expanding and exploring notions and conceptions of... everything?
