Don’t criticize what you can’t understand

Art is subjective. I have often found it difficult to appreciate. I like things to be in proportion and for lines to be straight.

When I see something that looks even slightly off-kilter, I start to feel uncomfortable, which is weird, I know.

Realizing that it doesn’t matter much whether I like someone’s art or not was freeing. Previously, I felt like I should have had an opinion on whatever I was looking at. Now, I think that if someone’s art moves you, that’s a good thing, but if it doesn’t, well that’s ok too.

If somebody gets something out of anything anybody created with intention, then that is art. I think.
