The Role of the Artist

A quotation -
"He was an artist when he saw fire, even a match head: an instinct in him acknowledged its elemental status. He was an artist when he saw society: it never crossed his mind that it had to be like this, had any right, had any business being like this. A car in the street. Why? Why cars? This is what an artist has to be: harassed to the point of insanity or stupification by first principles." Martin Amis, in The Information

I feel something for this point of view. How do others see the role of the artist?
