One other damper on the everyday enjoyment of art is that often people feel the right to criticize or misunderstand someone elseâ€™s work. Artists themselves are particularly guilty of this. Filled with their own theories, their own visions, they often cannot see someone elseâ€™s as valid or genuine. The fact being that all of us are frustrated creatively in some way, it irks us to see someone else successfully making a statement of being. This is one reason why so many people identify themselves with past masters and refuse the present ones.
