Someday I'll Be the Artist Formerly Known as Starving
let's face it
We (and the media) perpetuate the starving artist myth - Van Gogh,
Pollock, you name the artist
we relish in the Romanticism of the misunderstood artist
we make defense for the aberrant behaviors
I am tired of artist being associated with crazy and STARVING
can we make a list of historical artists that are not "labeled"
crazy artists and starving make good stories
today I heard that some woman who bought a painting at yard sale years
ago(for $5.00) now finds out it is a Pollock worth $25 million.
This is the kind of stuff that makes people wonder what art is about. ??????
I'm not starving
