What Difference Does It Make? Does your mind ever ask you this?
Do you look down at your art and hear this phrase ping ponging through the corridors of thought?
Poor little piece of art, are you really asking it to solve the world’s problems in order to justify its existence?
Are you asking it to solve all of your problems to justify its existence?
That is not what it is for!
What a heavy load to put on a humble impulse.
Would you ask an egg to support a skyscraper?
The Difference is this: did you jump off a balcony? Did you break all your plates? Did you ruin a friendship? No? That’s the difference. Life is hard and art is necessary to make it bearable.
A little pleasure, a little hope, a little alchemy to transform the ugly to beauty.
An outcome does not have to be concrete and permanent. It can merely be the lack of defeat.
