If you don’t know, all art is avant-garde art.
(Avant-garde means “experimental” or “innovative.”)
I mean, right? At least to some extent…
Sure others have painted or written or whatever before – but not in the exact same way – with the same style and personality.
In the same way that Picasso painted a million pieces, but is only know for like 20 of them – every single post on this blog is an avant-garde expression of guessing.
Week in and week out I get the writing done.
99% of it nobody cares about.
But occasionally one post will hit a note somewhere.
The rest are good practice and will hopefully be seen somewhere on the long-tail.
Then I added: I have decided my act is going to go avant-garde. It is the only way to do what I want. I’m not sure what I meant, but I wanted to use the lingo, and it was seductive to make these pronouncements. Through the years, I have learned there is no harm in charging oneself up with delusions between moments of valid inspiration.
