Home again, Home again
I've been trained, over the years, that no one likes a show-off. And thus, I have also taught myself not to start conversations about my art with sentences like "Similar to Damien Hirst's 'For the Love of God'..." But, apparently, that is what is expected. I'm doing my best to wrap my ego (much thinner than people would think) around the concept that it is not only alright, but actually expected, for artists to name-drop their betters, shamelessly. I've always thought it was incredibly alienating and gauche. Shows what I know after 7 years of artschul!
