Today I was thinking "Well, maybe it's because we feel that way. Worn. Used." Like the hoodie I'm wearing - it's TOTALLY grungy.
Sometimes I feel this way. Old and used and torn. Does it need to come out in my art? Is that the point?
But then I started wondering if maybe the OPPOSITE is true. Is it because of the polished perfectionism that so many people feel the need to project that accepting imperfections, even causing them, in our work is so appealing? I have no idea. Thoughts?
