Who Do you Serve? / by Chris Hall

It is not enough to know how to paint, we must know why we paint, or rather, if you will, why we create.  

Do you create to please other people's sensibilities?  A kitten, an Easter Egg, a calendar page?  

All bourgeois expectations.  I will not create to placate your expectations.  I will not be your easy chair.

I create as to be a constant thorn in the side of the man.  Yes, you know, that man.  

I also create to cheat Death.  Fuck Death.  

Who do you serve?
