How to Write an Artist Statement

Updated: Nov 5

"What is an Artist Statement?

An artist statement is about your work’s purpose or philosophy giving your audience deeper insight into it. It may include the symbolism you give your materials, or the issues you address. Your statement should include whatever is most important to you and your work. It should address and explain in general terms what your art is, your methods and materials."
