There could be a subset of the literature of art and of art practices that is concerned with only the so-called artist’s statement. Such a scholarly endeavor might go far in going beyond the rote qualifier about such statement, that they are a necessary evil.
For my own part, I have no hesitancy seeing my own statement being the integration of intent and brand, and, alas, psychological priming.
This first of four parts seems nicely tuned, and I wouldn’t offer a statement that I didn’t deeply resonate, yet I intentionally managed to throw in a word the reader might have to look up. Isn’t a law that the artist’s statement has to include a minimum of one such word?
