I Will Not Make Any More Boring Art


Today with the advent of social media and self-publishing, the world is subjected to more boring artwork than ever. People have lost of art of self editing and the lack of third party gatekeepers – curators, gallery owners etc allows the flood gates of boring art to flow.

Jay Maisel wrote the following poem for his photography workshop students:

If it doesn’t excite you,
the thing that you see,
then why in the world
would it excite me?

Words to live by!
