Next up is my artist statement. My what? Ya, this is a real head scratcher. What's a beginner doing making an artist statement anyway? Hmm?
Okay, no worries. I could look to examples but this is supposed to be a unique perspective. I'll refer to I'd rather be in the studio! by Alyson B. Stanfield for guidelines:
- Write in the first person.
- Speak to the future, not the past or present.
- My statement will empower me and enthuse the reader to view my work.
- Keep it short--a couple of paragraphs.
I'm off now to try out a few exercises and begin journaling. More on the guidelines and the process as my work develops.
Those of you with experience in this matter, your thoughts are most welcome!
