Is there such a thing as a contented artist? (read the whole question)
I don’t mean financially.
One reads about art being the result of struggle and angst – that good art is the result of internal conflict and challenges within the psyche that are represented in the art that is produced. It doesn’t matter if it is acting, music, paintings, or a specific type of art – just that the act of producing something creative is itself the result of struggle, conflict, angst, or whatever.
Can happy people produce good art?
