This is a huge world that itself, is situated within an even incomprehensibly larger expanding space. There's room for all work.
A mistake in 'art school' is to build up the legend of a selection of artists and to teach that the goal of every artist is to seek that kind of success.
How do you actually define success? Is it just about increasing the value of work at auction for collectors wealthy enough to afford it?
Must all work radically revolutionize existing trends?
While art can be successful at all of these, a better goal for an artist is to work hard and leave a body of work that amazes and delights the artist as much in the years to come as it did at the moment of its making.
For an artist to look at a work that they have just guided into this reality and to think, 'How did this come to be, and how did it come to be by my hand?' , - in short, to work for one's own amazement, that is the success for which an artist should strive.
