An interesting question can be raised.
Whether, is it the author who creates the art, or is it the art who creates the author?
Personally, I got to the conclusion that it is a mutual process between artist and art, constantly shaping each other. It is really interesting to notice how you and your feelings change while creating something. During this process, you create value, but you yourself will become something more at the same time, because you are starting to grasp the bigger picture and to become part of the art itself.
