Monday Motivator: Attempting the Impossible is Liberating

Art motivational quote “When the light is coming and going it becomes more obvious that nothing is simple, and in fact what one is trying to do is actually impossible. Which I find a very liberating idea.

“It changes your relationship to notions about success and failure, ‘getting it right’ etc, it becomes more an idea of participation, of engagement and trying to make something which is authentic and ultimately an affecting image.”

— Artist Alan McGowan, interview in Scottish Art Scene Q13
