What is the biggest misconception about art?
That one can ever really reach a final destination or growth point with their art.
You are never fully matured as an artist. Art for the individual is ever evolving and changing. An artist exists in a relationship with his or her work that expands and takes on new dimension with every endeavor and experience.
Which is more important in art – concept or execution?
I think ideally they should coexist. However, there is a concept in the music world that is if you strip away all of the production and embellishment from a song, it should stand on its own. Essentially, without a strong concept, there is no base for the execution. –Littlebird (Little Bird Gallery)
