The genuine artist is royally screwed; we live in a world where your “art” will not always be valued in the way that it should be.
Because what you do is not “tangible,” it’s not measurable. it’s not an easily packaged commodity that a man a suit can ship off 3 times a week.
I would argue that “art” is more spiritual than it is physical.
Although spirit is the most solid, tangible, ever-lasting thing on planet earth; in our small minded, dollar focussed, narrow ways we have not yet found a way to measure its value.
How valuable is a memory?
Is it not all we ever have?
