If you make art for yourself and no one else, then make whatever you want. If you make art for the rest of us and you're interested in having us appreciate and understand what you're up to, you better make it in ways that give us a fighting chance to figure it out. You understand your art perfectly because you're the one making it, and you know yourself, and your inspirations and motivations exceptionally well. The rest of us, on the other hand, either don't know you that well or don't know you at all, which means we need help deciphering what your art is about. So help us.
