You are insufferable (Gaming)

and part of an artist's job is to transfigure suffering.

I don't think so at all. An artist's job is to create something that gives pleasure. Are you saying a piece of art, that discovers, reminds or reaffirms some beauty in this world is not art?!

An artists job is create something that imparts something to the receiver. It doesn't have to be just pleasure. It could be insight, pain, joy, or anything really.

These things are ultimately pleasurable. Why do people go see scary movies? Or read sad books? Or look at grotesque paintings? We enjoy the negative feelings through proxy.


Does that mean I can't be an artist? :-p
