“…catering to fears of being misunderstood leaves you dependent upon your audience. “
Art and Fear by David Bales and Ted Orland
This week I am brought back to considering how the need to be understood affects my process of art making.
Questions for consideration:
- What contributes to my feeling “understood”?
- Do I understand and accept myself and my art making?
- How important is that to me and my process?
- How would it feel if no one “understood” my art or liked it?
