If I worried about what people thought of me or my art I wouldn’t create anything.
Paralysis of ideas vs judgement but validation is subjective You can’t win or please them all So create for your target audience The rest can leave to troll another day.
It’s not fearlessness that propels artist’s controversial or unpopular art it’s an involuntary response We pour ourselves out like sweating or crying or exhaling.
A key difference between real life and art is editing. To point out what’s wrong or lacking is missing the point of individual expression.
Artists first copy to learn as they progress they develop their own Mastery of art is confidence in style.
The skill of disregarding critics: Who have nothing unique to give Who take no personal risks Who never reveal anything Who create nothing but destruction Tearing down and crushing the artist like a target.
A psychological difference between professional vs amateur (Master vs student) Is Conscious Awareness it has little to do with the mundane exchange of money.
So if critical experts pretentiously ask you for your deeds and credentials- your awards and accomplishments- Tell them to go fuck themselves in the the hell that they dwell in.
