I took a risk, now I am left with a heavy heart. You win some, you lose some. Time to brush myself off, move one, and be open to taking more risks.
The first critique: I am frustrated. That is it. How to articulate this and how to describe this. Not exactly sure.
(1) You put the critique on my artist statement
(2) You took the tape off my artist statement in order to publicly display your note.
You can think and say whatever you would like. You have your own opinion and I am glad to read about it but the way you executed was disrespectful and rude.
You just don’t get it. But this does not make me feel defeated nor discouraged. This feels empowering, and infuriating. I stand by my art and I am proud of what I have created. I am putting my message out there and leaving my imprint. Regardless of your critique, whether you fully understand the “point” or not, my feelings towards my decisions remain the same. You just don’t get it and I do not expect you to get it. I get it and I stand by it.
