The Artist Statement and Bio
This is my last harangue for the summer on this stuff, but I am going crazy over request for my Artist Statement and Bio. What difference does it make? If I could communicate with words I would have been a writer, but I paint. So do we really need to comment about why we paint? With who and where did I study? And knowing this will tell the viewer what about the painting. If all of this is to justify the purchase of a painting, I would rather them buy my artist statement and bio. That seems just. Again, i will not visit this again, or at least until Oct, when I will be preparing for a show.
