The artist yearns for recognition, but doesn’t care to show his craft.
The artists hates to work in the modern sense, but will spend three days shaping a curved line no bigger than the pinky finger.
The ideal expression of art is to create a mountain. The scale is dramatic. The form is familiar yet the details are nuanced. From a certain vantage point, it is nothing remarkable. From another angle, its magnificence induces tears.
This is the goal of the artist.
To be everything and nothing. To dominate the visual field, evoke intense emotion, and then fall silent.
To be like everyone else and the only one on earth.
