You know when people either love you or hate you, it’s for the same reasons. And that’s when you know you have penetrated the audience and you have touched them and you have sparked something in them that flows through their system. Either they consume and take it with them and love or they hate it and it destroys them and they’re angry at me. And all I can say is, “thank you very much, they’ll be another one.” It’s what art is supposed to do. We live in a society where there’s a perfect scenario of art. There’s like a manual, if you do this, this and this, you’ll achieve that. But that’s the chief enemy of creativity, is being safe and having “good taste”. Art is the expression of emotions and it has to grab you in a poetic, beautiful and gentle way as well as a violent, aggressive and frustrating way.
