Urban Angst Art

from Fast Company: 

Artist Lynn Aldrich likes to quote a short story from writer Flannery O’Connor as a source of creative wisdom. 

“She said, ‘You must find your own country,'” says Aldrich, “meaning that instead of searching for something you think is way cooler than what you’ve got, your best art will come out of what is purely your connection to the world.”
