Today, I've been rethinking what it means to create art.
In my last post, I touched on the pressure I exert on myself when it comes to writing -- a pressure to make sculpt everything perfectly, to use exactly the right words to convey a certain meaning. I think I apply this pressure to my art-making, too, which hinders its function as an emotional outlet.
I don't think I want my art to look perfect anymore. I need to rethink the notion that my art needs to be photorealistic in order to be considered art. Instead, I want my art to capture a process; I want my art to carry a presence. And I want to use art as a means to connect back to myself.
