Rant: Throw enough mud and some of it will stick

Throw enough mud and some of it will stick. A mantra of sorts that I live by. My art is not for everyone, or even for most people. Sometimes it offends, shocks, upsets, arouses, inspires or invades the senses. I don’t consider that a flaw. I consider that an achievement. And I’ll put it all out there and see what happens. It sounds tacky but if it reaches only one person in a hundred, I’ve succeeded.

I don’t care what the other ninety-nine people think about it. I just don’t. My concentration is fixed squarely on the person who ‘gets it.’ I’m happy to keep making art for that one person if it means I get to create the ideas and images in my head. To do anything else would be to sell myself short. If you are offended. Good.
