Unlike some of you more reserved folks, I tend to complain out loud. While vociferously venting financial and artistic frustrations has some possible long-term health benefits, it also welcomes advice from every corner. Here is some of the feedback that I have received:
1) Make sculpture that is more accessible.
2) Replicate work.
3) Choose a different medium.
4) Give up and get a real job.
Personally I like number 5. The world in shift is a good time to think differently, try new things, and push boundaries like never before. Art can and should reflect the time that it was made and provide a social commentary, insight, and/or a narrative into the mindset of the community that it was made in. And so while the rest of world is choosing reserve while it continues to consume the same reserves, we have an opportunity to conceive new ideas, break new ground and lead through innovation and inspiration.
And so, here is my suggestion for you.Try something new… what have you got to lose?
