For some time I have thought of writing a blog for a few reasons.
First, it seems that the “artist statement” is never satisfying, never fulfilling, and never gives the full picture of the artist. It implies a finite set of ideas, that one’s art is rigid and fixed within the sole parameters of those 500 or so words. When in fact, an artist’s work is a fluid and constantly evolving process. I could change my statement every week if I had the time. But I don’t. So instead, a blog can serve as an alternative to the formal artist statement.
Second, my work is very process oriented and I love talking about the process, my influences, the materials I use and the choices I make. It is just as important as the work itself.
I hope readers will find new insights about my work, and in turn help me to be more insightful.
