An artist's reality is what they perceive it to be and this perception is how they survive in the artwork and in their lives. To force an artist to survive differently than their perception of what is real, would be to kill their means of living or surviving.
Art and artists, for the most part, aren’t about the next marketing trend or the next new thing. Rather, art and artists are about life and creating new life, fresh life.
To take away an artist's ability to create and survive would make life very difficult. Everyone can think about life this way. How an individual perceives life and survives can only be changed by the individual not through a group. And, definitely not by force.
