It’s the shadow under your bed, that piece of work stashed deep in your drawer. It’s that smile on your face that fades away when no one is looking.
For years, I have let the fear of mediocrity devour my sanity. I’ve let it seep under my skin and take control of the reins that tug painfully at my brain. I’ve let it become my sole motivation for the creation of works.
But I’m tired of it now.
As a retaliation to the years of repressed passion, I’m starting a new design series called ‘The Fear of Mediocrity’. Using simple geometric shapes to form pseudo-polyhedrons that represent some of the most common phobias in today’s world, this series of digital artworks faces the fear of mediocrity head-on, in hopes that its aesthetic appeal will somehow silence that anguished cry that still echoes at the back of my mind.
