Personally, I never believe an artist saying “I do it for myself” is saying the truth, because why would you go through the trouble of making something that goes out into the world if you didn’t care about somebody else seeing it? It’s like the difference between those who choose “more comfortably termed entertainment” versus what people think of as the “art life,” which is supposedly more monastic or spiritual. I don’t believe in those distinctions.
