“I believe that the art we create has a message, intentional or not. I will no longer be dismissive of the statements we make. In making art, we convey our humanity. Which cannot help but be political.”
Art making is individualistic and thereby an isolating pursuit. No matter how certain an artist is of her intent and method, there is always some doubt about the outcome. Of all the feedback artists get about their work, feedback from colleagues should be the most valuable.
