Random thought: I find it disappointing when artwork, which was made with the expression of the heart and desires of the mind, is judged based on “academic standards” plagued with the opinion of the individual who judges, squashing the original meanings in which the work was made.

I don’t think any academic scale can truly determine the worth and value of one’s visual representation of their mind. Nobody sees your perception through your eyes and can interpret the story you wish to tell through similar appreciation. We seem to think that, even in academic standards, that our own boxes we prefer to sort works in based on our own belief of right and wrong visual representation are relevant when “judging” the work of others, but cringe at the thought of others using the same bias upon our own works. The double standards apply forcefully and consistently.
