I grew up avoiding calling myself an artist, until I accepted I am one.
Art can be more comforting than yoghurt on a sunburn.
Art is the way some people communicate with each other.
Art is the respectful treatment of the unknown.
Art is the creative way we encounter our fears.
Art is the freedom of being able to be misunderstood.
Art is the subtle yet deep ogle, which will never happen again.
Art is creating with no remorse and no expectations.
Art is finding ways to get you out of your own quicksand.
Also, Andrei Tarkovsky on art, here.
