The relationship we have with our art is like the relationship arc between 2 people. It’s free and fun in the beginning. Then slightly more honest, then serious, then painful, then resentful. Then sometimes separation. There may follow a period of remorse. Then occasionally reformation with newfound perspective. Then happiness, then genuineness, then peace, and then finally clarity.
Our relationship with our art is a relationship that needs be honest no matter where it starts and ends.
