Summary "Art Without Compromise will inspire artists to change the way they think about their creative landscapes, from personal goals to cultural influences to technological realities. Author Wendy Richmond helps artists to look closely at what they see every day, both in their own art-making and in the world around them. Readers will learn to develop an uncompromising commitment to finding and protecting their own unique process for making their strongest art. This thought-provoking book covers such topics as: understanding the artist's unique identity in relation to the larger culture; building systems of support and collaboration; explaining how an artist's needs can lead to innovation and authenticity; responding to the Internet and changing concepts of what is public and private; and accepting digression as a creative necessity." "Artists will come away with a clearer perspective of their past and future work, a critical eye for personal relevance, and an abundance of inspiration."--BOOK JACKET.
