I've been asked by several things I'm involved with to submit an "Artist's Statement". I've never done this before. So far, I feel I haven't had it explained very well to me. I've read some great ones! But what exactly should go into it? What questions should it be answering about me and my work?
|what do i do? i need direction.|
I found the following in my google results. I shook my head in horror as I read it:
Q: Why do I have to write an artist statement? It's stupid. If I wanted to write to express myself I would have been a writer.
I 'm thinking that might be the wrong attitude to start with! lol I did find THIS advice on another blog. That gives me lots to think about. And I came across this, which I thought would be helpful by the sound of the title. But it was too much to read and now my brain is beginning to turn to mush. I'm feeling the deadline pressure. Perhaps the first google result holds more merit now? lol Ahhh I'll keep trying. Feedback? Links?
