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?
