Starry, Starry Night: an Artist’s Burden

The artist’s burden as unbounded, unrecognised arc and trajectory is really a microcosm of the resistance to change and insight (as individuality, creativity, compassion) that we all face in life.

An irony of this is that, not only is an artist’s message so rarely understood or acknowledged during their own lifetimes, but this obscurity is almost a necessity for it to later accrue such value, significance and cultural influence.

A beautiful song yet reflecting in this reflective digital pool an image of human beings quite simply being human. The beauty lies in that we recognise that Vincent’s burden is in so many ways also our own.
