Are some subjects and questions childish in the sense of ”nothing important for adults”? If the answer is yes: does that mean that those subjects are not a concern for art? Sometimes when I work, prints or paintings emerge that I find surprising, but also childish. The childishness can lie in the theme, in the workmanship or in the sentiments expressed. I do not know how to handle these works – I do not exhibit them, but neither do I destroy them.

... only for humans

 

Sometimes in exhibitions I see works of the same kind, and even then I can not decide my position: are they worthy of en exhibition, or are they only halfmade sketches, too private to be interesting for others than their creator.
