, written by Jeremy. Read the commentary.

Spent the weekend with a good friend.
Both of us love words. Somewhere on
one of our hikes we started rolling
through favourite quotes. He pops
out with this: “True artists never
look like artists.” It’s something his
Dad said and he’s never forgotten.

Does the truly brilliant actually
appear brilliant? Why is profound
often so simple? Isn’t real art
purposeful expression?

Does this explain why we always
pick the middle: it just looks better?
Is this why is popular so loud?
Maybe this explains why the most
obvious is the most celebrated.

Maybe another more important
question is this: Should a true artist
look like one? Maybe they’d be more
successful.
