â€œItâ€™s all self-inflicted,â€ Williams says of the tortured clowns. â€œI can understand that most people can repeat themselves and put themselves in compromising positions. I think thatâ€™s common to the human condition. But this makes me sad. I donâ€™t relate to the clown. Itâ€™s sad that heâ€™s doing that to himself. This exhibit as a whole makes me sad because this is what scares people. It makes it hard for me.â€
If you haven’t already read this, I recommend you do so. Gaining insight into the inner psyche of professional clowns is never a waste of time. Poor clowns. (Via Art21 blog).
