Sharing is great Maze 38
Since starting this project a few people have asked am I scared of sharing my work and having someone steal it. My answer is always no. I guess the possibility exists but it’s not a fear that I have. I wasn’t the inventor of the maze and a lot of my influence comes from M.C. Escher. So to a certain extent I am a thief.
When I’ve had shows handfuls of people have showed up and seen my work they may have stolen it with a camera phone but I was honored to be sharing a piece of my soul with them. A feeling I wouldn’t have gotten if I was scared to share my work. Plus as much as I love and feel confident in the quality of my art I just don’t have that big a head to believe that it’s all that for someone to steal. Maybe one day I will be big enough to have my work worthy of theft.
Plus I like to approach my work like the music industry in believing that your only as good as your last hit. If someone steals and uses one of my mazes where does that get them? Maybe it will open up opportunities but I see the bigger picture it’s just 1 of many to come and by sharing on the net 100’s are beginning to see my work and style.
