Oh my goodness, this is me! Now I know what's wrong with me! Thank you so much Jafabrit! :)
First time it happend to me undaunted I thought what the heck is the matter with me. I had a great show, everyone loved my work but I was so down. Now I realize it's like any event you spend a year gearing up for, there is going to be post blues.
I've just spent the whole week feeling paranoid about what other people think about my work! I don't understand it because I felt so positive at the summer exhibition, but then I haven't had any comments this time round :(
Don't worry it's better than being disemboweled. Maybe the trick is to have a few shows, or projects happening in the same time period, so our interests are divided and not all in the same basket. I haven't worked out what an artist is yet, and many people who are not artists, are totally bamboozled about our occupation (obsession). I think this makes it very hard to land things on the ground - it's like there is an underlying need for justification, when no justification is available or needed.It's like post artal depression, after the delivery of the art baby.
