Contents Introduction -- The nature of the problem -- Art & fear -- Fears about yourself -- Fears about others -- Finding your work -- The outside world -- The academic world -- Conceptual worlds -- The human voice.
Summary "These are questions that matter, questions that recur at each stage of artistic development - and they are the source for this volume of wonderfully incisive commentary." "Art & Fear explores the way art gets made, the reason it often doesn't get made, and the nature of the difficulties that cause so many artists to give up along the way." "This is a book about what it feels like to sit in your studio or classroom, at your wheel or keyboard, easel or camera, trying to do the work you need to do. It is about committing your future to your own hands, placing Free Will above predestination, choice above chance. It is about finding your own work."--BOOK JACKET
