Art affirms a world, completes a world or promises a world.
The affirmation of a world that is not full of positive significance and potential does nothing but provide folks with refashioning of the expected: safe novelties.
A world that exalts self-sufficiency and autonomy prefers an impoverished perfection to any suggestion we are not already complete in ourselves, however much loneliness, hopelessness and emptiness demonstrates otherwise: ideological narcissism.
A world that scoffs at transcendence refuses on principle to hope for anything that inspires genuine love: cool lust.
If you have to hustle your art, try spending less time on craft and more time on asking deeply offensive questions.
