Quoted from a post on wondercabinet:
"For the artist, any artist, poet, painter, musician, time in plenty and an abundance of ideas are the necessary basics of creativity. By dreaming and idleness and then by intense self-discipline does the artist live. The artists cannot perform between 9 and 6, 5 days a week, or if she sometimes does, she cannot guarantee to do so. Money culture hates that. It must know what it is getting, when it is getting it, and how much it will cost. The most tyrannical of patrons never demanded from their protogees what the market now demands of artists; if you can't sell your work regularly and quickly, you can either starve or do something else. The time that art needs, which may not be a long time, but which has to be its own time, is anathema to a money culture. Money confuses time with itself. That is part of its unreality."
- From Art Objects, Jeanette WintersonA tough but true reality of today's art world. Time for ideas to develop is in especially short supply in the ever-quickening market-driven side of the art world.
