Art & Fear

 

 

       "Ordinary art means something like:  all art not made by Mozart.  After all, art is rarely made by Mozart -like people -- essentially (statistically speaking) there aren't any people like that.  But while geniuses may get made once-a-century or so, good art gets made all the time.  Making art is a common and intimately human activity, filled with all the perils (and rewards) that accompany any worthwhile effort.  The difficulties art-makers face are not remote and heroic, but universal and familiar.
        It is about committing your future to your own hands, placing Free Will above predestination, choice above chance.  It is about finding your own work."
                                           -Art & Fear  by David Bayles & Ted Orland


How does this make you feel as an artist?
