Our Conversation about Art

When my artist friend and I got together for dinner last night all we talked about was failure, failure of fame, failure of use.

I guess art is all about failure. Almost all art is an exercise in failure and artists suffer endlessly for their failures to do it precisely and failure in life, abandonment, ignorance.

The main reason for this is that there no no room for storage in all the world for all the art. Our basements are full. No one will accept our gifts. We have to beg or even to pay to have people view our work. Storage is the main obstacle to art.
