    One finds that the word “art” and the word “artist” have become burdened with connotations. These connotations are meaningless to the artist. In the eyes of the public, the “artist” is something identifiable, and is therefore something that can be an object of consideration, just as a thing that is called “art” is subject to consideration as a thing of “art”. The artist that remains truthful to the spirit of the art does not draw such considerations. The art rendered truthfully speaks beyond the casual eye, the solipsistic mind, can not be considered from merely an emotional or intellectual distance, and by this, the artist becomes invisible as a figure of consideration. For an artist to create a work to the connotations of “art” is to be a diversion, not an artist.
