Art school makes you soft.
One is surrounded by a bubble which comes fully furnished with materials, classes, instruction, critiques, studios and like-minded peers. It is an intolerably comfortable environment which teaches the student a narrow perspective. Such situations create complacent students who imagine themselves as artists but who, more often than not, have rarely, if at all, stepped outside of the warm and nurturing art-school. The prospect of being born into the real world, being removed from the facilities, equipment, studios, technicians and positive reinforcement is altogether an unfathomable as well as a terrifying situation. The student imagines they are an artist when the university gives them grants, automatic exhibitions and support. The university breeds complacency.
The bubble is everything. the bubble is life.
I don't want to become soft...I don't want to be a student...but if one can be in a comfortable environment, then why shouldn't they?
