190211 A Story About a Woman's Cat
There’s a conflict in my head regarding the notion of a narrative. It seems that more recently everything has to have a narrative and backstory. There’s something about the “story” of colors and shapes and textures that transcends words and agendas and even the artist themselves. There’s no denying that a good narrative can add a level of interest to a work of art, or an artist—I’m just concerned for my own work that it first speaks for itself in the language of art. What happens after that hopefully only enhances the experience.
