Any artist has to face the fact that not everybody is going to appreciate a particular piece of art. Some won't like any of their work - that's life. If this artist is so sensitive that having people talk about his work is unbearable to him, he should keep it secret, and certainly never show or sell any of it.
Sure Andrew, agree with you 120%. The discussion shifted all at a sudden from what our perception of his sculpture could be, to his stand on unfavourable views of his work. Some blows come from people who aren`t amateurs so a degree of thruth, and some constructiveness is always possible to draw on behalf of the artist himself. In all, what should really matter is the outlook of the artist more intelligently looking at the half FULL glass, even when someone may shout the darn thing is bone dry...
