La-la-la Artist Statement

I think Artists with a Capital A lose about 90% of their potential audience with the Artist Statement.

No mistake, it’s a good idea to hash out why you do stuff, but nobody wants to hear it, in part because it sounds like pretentious BS, and it also sounds like every other damn Artist Statement. (There are sub-groups of such statements, of course, so a politically-minded artist is going to say stuff that sounds like other political artists, etc.)

I’ll stick to my most recent Statement that I hope any old person can relate to, which is that I just hope to make art that holds together. Also, I don’t work enough, or hard enough. (Now that’s something I bet a lot of people understand.)
