It is one of the secret, unacknowledged features of our relationship with art that many of its most prestigious and lauded examples can leave us a bit scared, or bored, or both. In the privacy of our own minds, an uncomfortable proportion of the world’s art collections can come across as alien and repulsive. Be very aware of how normal it is to harbour strongly negative views about things. Make yourself more at home with the seemingly alien mindsets of people who created some of the world’s most revered works of art. Look for points of connection between the artist’s and your own.
