Artists statement

Usually I don’t include artists statements because I think my art should be self explanatory. However as I was exhibiting a painting about what Spode means to me, I said that it was about how Spode is now, that I have only been there for a few years. I also said that I wanted to include  the history of the buildings and what was going on outside the building and how exciting I had found the experience of painting it.

I think it made sense, it’s difficult to know how long to make it and how much information it required.

  1. I think artist statements are often useful and interesting to people and help them relate to what they’re looking at. I think a lot of people don’t know HOW to look at art and the statement helps them gain access. All that being said I hate writing them too.
