My dear,

The job of the designer is to make things as clear as possible for as many people as possible.

The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.

The artist’s job is not to be clear, to be heard fully and understood, or to even be liked. The job of an artist is to deepen the mystery within each person that crosses their path so much that they have no choice but to give up shallowness.

The job of an artist is to reach inside the viewers, to reach that place where they hide all their dark secrets, all the things they dare not remember, and to pull them out and throw them in their faces.

The job of an artist is to create black holes.

Falsely yours,
Francis Bacon
