We often think of “mistakes” as being steps in the wrong direction, but, as artists, allowing the fear of failure to paralyze us can be the biggest mistake of all. Risk-taking is an essential ingredient in artistry and a key element in creating a world of inspiration – both for yourself and your peers. I came across photos of Motohiko Odani’s solo exhibition “Phantom Limb” which was presented at the Mori museum in Tokyo. The instillation pushes the boundaries of traditional sculpture and is a gorgeous example of what happens when we take risks in our work.
