I had an interview with the head of the art department today about possibly taking a class a year before I’m supposed to and credit transfers and all of that fun stuff. I have to say though, she’s a lovely lady but she’s intimidating as hell. I’m not easily intimidated but I feel like I have something to prove to her (which I guess I do, I was trying to take an advanced class). But I also am really frustrated because I don’t like trying to prove my worth when it comes to my art. I don’t make art to impress you. I make art as a release, a way to keep me sane and keep me happy. There is this brilliant quote by Louise Borghese where she essentially said that if the person looking at her art doesn’t understand it, theres no point in her explaining because she’s failed with them . I love that (p.s. if you don’t know who that is, look her up, her art is some of the most ¬†personal and beautiful work you’ll ever see). I take a lot of film for a certain reason, I shoot black and white for a certain reason and Im more than willing to explain why but I feel like the rest (with exceptions of course) is for everyone to feel or see. I have no idea explaining it, but proving its worth, or value is not what I like to do.
