Art and criticsm

 “It is inevitable that he who by concentrated application has extended this limit for himself, should arouse the resentment of those who have accepted conventions which, since accepted by all, require no initiative of application and this resentment generally takes the form of meaningless laughter or of criticism, if not persecution.” — Man Ray

I like Man Ray and the Dadaists and I like this saying. Any artist that posts on the internet is opening themselves to both kindness and resentment from all quarters.
