Artist Creates ‘Decaying’ Paintings As Visual Representation Of Neglect

i just had a hardcore artgasm
I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.
Words cannot describe how much I love this post.
So parts of the conversation went like this: Tiffany said, ‘I live down on the Chalk.’ And Petulia said, ‘Oh, where they keep all those sheep? I don’t like sheep much, they’re so kind of … baggy.’
Tiffany said, ‘Actually, we’re very proud of our sheep.’
And then you could stand back as Petulia reversed her opinions like someone trying to turn a cart round in a very narrow space: ‘Oh, I didn’t really mean I hate them. I expect some sheep are all right. We’ve got to have sheep, obviously. They’re better than goats, and woollier. I mean, I actually like sheep, really. Sheep are nice.’
Petulia spent a lot of time trying to find out what other people thought so that she could think the same way. It would be impossible to have an argument with her.
