It's hard to not sound pretentious on an art website, you know that?
Not everyone. But art is such a sticky, touchy thingie and we get all over-the-top talking about it-- or the opposite, when we are asked to analyze our art, we have nothing to say. A lot of people express themselves better in art than in words, so when they're talking about art they mess it all up. We have a way to disable audience comments on here, what we really should have is a way to disable artist's comments.
Brilliant art doesn't--by no means--come from articulate people. It's kind of an unfortunate thing. Or maybe not.
Best thing to do is let the maker make sense from their art, and only that.
Shut up, artist.
