Does it upset us if the art we create isn’t seen by other people?
Does it matter to us if it isn’t?
The truth is, for many people, the act of creation will be enough. But for just as many people, there is no point in creating something that will never be consumed.
The difficult part of making art is to act as if creation is all that matters, because only then can you make something personal and emotionally connected.
Being desperate for your work to ‘matter’ just makes us create what we ‘think’ people want, rather than creating authentic work that really matters to the only person that matters: ourselves.
