If you’re here, you’re doing well.


What the “fairy god gallerist” believers don’t understand is that, in the art business, it’s not the art you make but the context you create around it that counts.

You have nailed is a myth that goes beyond artists; the myth of an external power that will save us.  This fantasy goes beyond religion, art and consumerism.  I think it is related to childhood trauma - the betrayal of nurturing the natural dependency of the child turns into this desire to continue to be an infant. 
  I feel better hearing you say this and inspired to keep creating.  Keep posting.  You are a light in the world.
