1. When I abandoned my ambitions regarding my day job (Visual Effects) I became a way better as a professional in it.
2. Right after I got completely disappointed in rules and principles of the art world and its institutions, my art became qualitatively way better than before (when I cared and tried to comply).
3. When recently I told all my friends that I don’t really want to have any exhibitions because it would greatly distract me from continuing developing my art, couple of months later I got one confirmed exhibition and two in plans.
So that’s how it works in this world?
