Andy may have believed that, but I don't.
I believe that we need to have art and beauty in our lives. I believe that artists are the purveyors of all things that bring joy to the heart and challenge the mind. From earliest time we see evidence that we are continually seeking to put our unique stamp on the world and to document our ever-changing point of view. That is what art is all about. Turning the ordinary into the extraordinary and coloring the world with your perspective.
As one more in my Master Artist series, I wanted to tackle the unpredictable and totally off the wall Andy Warhol. The piece that I created (which is now the newest blog banner above) is pure fantasy. There are times when I produce something that seems so outrageous to me that I cannot imagine anyone wanting it or even paying me money for it. And then I am pleasantly surprised. I fully expect that no one will ever want to wear it, much less buy it. But then again, there is always a match for every piece of art, much like there are matches to people or condiments or shoes.
Nobody really needs to have my jewelry. Nobody needs to buy my wearable art. Nobody needs to have me create something one of a kind and unique in all the world. Nobody wants to be like everybody else.
I would like to meet this Ms. Nobody.
Somebody give her my card.
