If it weren't for art, I would be a lump of a person. I would have no ambition or drive to continue this meaningless existence we humans call life. Art has brought me everything.
I believe that art is supposed to be uplifting. I believe it is supposed to challenge the viewer and push them outside of their comfort zone. Art is meant to make a person dig inside of their mind and search for a purpose that the object they're starring at, or song they are listening to, or show they are watching is supposed to have.
During my time in school I have been graded for my art. I have been amidst other students to feed off. My professors give a damn only about their paycheck, reputation, and their own work. I cannot trust their critiques, because they are not my audience!!!!!
THEY ARE NOT MY FUCKING AUDIENCE!!
All they can offer is technical support and material advise. But the people of this world can give me their opinions and that is worth more than the professors I pay. So I beg of who ever is reading this, please critique my work. I am in need of a thrashing from someone I do not know. Every one of you is a far better mind that that of a professor who is up to their eyeballs in gallery politics.
