As an artist in the modern world, I use social media and the power of the internet to showcase and sell my work. In order to be successful, you have to be pretty open about who you are and your practice. Sometimes this can make me feel extra vulnerable because showing your process constantly can be exhausting. For me, there will always be a struggle of wanting to show my work because I’m proud, but also not wanting to make an Instagram post because Instagram can easily take your joy + emotional energy from you. This piece’s name means that as a social media follower or admirer of my work, you have a general admission ticket to what I share as an artist. I’m always vulnerable and it can be scary at times, but it’s worth it. I feel like my feelings are always on display and I’m on a stage.
