What is your art really about? Where is it going? What stands in the way of getting it there?These are questions that matter, questions that recur at each stage of artistic development-and they are the source for this volume of wonderfully incisive commentary. Art & Fear explores the way art gets made, the reasons it often doesn't get made, and the nature of the difficulties that cause so many artists to give up along the way.This is a book about what it feels like to sit in your studio or classroom, at your wheel or keyboard, easel or camera, trying to do the work you need to do. It is about committing your future to your own hands, placing free will above predestination, choice above chance. It is about finding your own work.

I loved this book so much that I listen to it every now and then also, I bought the actual book too.

A very thoughtful and interesting dissection of many questions placed on many artists upon themselves. a worthwhile read for an artist in any medium struggling with intent and inspiration.

So happy I took a punt on this book. Exactly what I’m wanted from it. Thought provoking, to the point, clear observations on the artists rocky roads through any artistic process. Will listen again for sure.
