When it comes to art.. neither can you take the criticism to heart, nor the praise to the head. Every human has an individual eye, and a distinct understanding of emotions and everybody reacts to a piece of information – visual or audio, in their own way, based on their own experiences in life and how they have dealt with their own sets of ups and downs. It’s not so simple. We all have the same organs but no two hearts go through the exact same situations in life. So, how people look at .. say a painting, or how someone hears a song..how a particular film touches a soul so much, or how a dance performance brings tears to one’s eyes.. it’s not often that a large group of people would react to a piece of art in the same way. So, if you are an artist and you faced criticism for your labor of love, don’t take it to heart. It’s just a perception of that individual. For me, art is not to be judged or rated. I would just feel it.. and let it touch my soul, or pass me by.
