Your job as an artist isn't to interpret what you make for an audience. You aren't performing some clever magic trick to wow others with your technique. You aren't an expert house builder who knows just how to cut and join each board. Your job is to bore a gaping hole through your defenses and give an audience the terrifying power of thinking whatever they may about the most intimate parts of you. If you can do that nothing else matters.
