I purposely did not call this post “how to write an artist’s statement.”  Because the answer is, there is no definitive right or wrong way to write an artist’s statement. The main purpose of an artist’s statement is to augment your artistic practice. This could be by offering background information, an explanation of your process, or any other information that will enhance the critical understanding of your work. Below are some suggestions to consider:

  • Why are you writing an artist’s statement?...
  • Does your work need to be fully explained?...
  • Have you looked at examples of other artist’s statements?...
