    Artist statement

    Personal expression of what you are doing?
    Why you are doing it?
    Where that creativity is coming from?
    What is that process is for you?

    You are the source of the artistic expression whether it is in writing or in artistic form.

    An artist statement looks at the work to see what other people see maybe it is something that you don’t see or haven’t seen before. That is why it is always hardest to write about your own work.

    Gaining insight into you through your external expression.

    Don’t conform to some pattern, mould, or some prescription how do you make some expression that is true to you.

    What moves you?

    What compels you? And how does that take shape in your art?





  8. Assessment Criteria:

    just a quick note to make sure you have covered all the criteria as we go into the final hours before ‘poster’ hand in.

    Assessment Criteria: 
    1. Critical and contextual research 35%.
    Initial research, including annotated references on Tumblr. 

    • The annotated reference list will consist of four references (artworks, objects, texts, practitioners etc.) posted on Tumblr. For each reference include a short statement that describes its relation to your research (100 words each). 

    Make sure that you have at least 4 great references that relate directly to your art / design / work / poster. These references you will be quickly and casually discussing in class, as to why you choose them, so you should be all over them by now. 

    2. Creative and conceptual process 35%
    Considered, conceptual response to a chosen research question. 

    How have you taken the research and understood it, interpreted it, digested it, and then seen the wider conceptual framework. Basically taken all that research and been able to say “you know what it is really about”. And from that had a creative response.  

    3. Coherent communication 30% Communication, presentation and articulation of response to a chosen research question in the form of a poster. 

    Have you been able to communicate your response to the viewer in the most simplest, clearest and cleanest way possible. Were you able to use the minimum for maximum effect? Or maximum for maximum effect?
