“Whatever you think my art means, or anyone’s art, whatever you think, you are right.”

Ian North feels that many people are afraid of contemporary art – they worry that they’ll get it wrong, that they won’t understand what it means, that they’ll embarrass themselves – which is why he feels so strongly about his message above. “Whatever you think my art means, or anyone’s art, whatever you think, you are right.”
