I can tell you what I think my paintings are about in that I am interested in certain things that influence the process - ideas, colours, music, emotions, processes - but I am also aware that some things are accidents, some things aren't conscious, and that people looking at paintings sometimes see things that weren't intended. That's all ok. Actually, that's great!
So for anyone looking for the best resource for writing an artists statement, I refer you to the wonderful artybollocks.com . With just one click I created the following masterpiece:
"My work explores the relationship between Bauhausian sensibilities and UFO sightings.
With influences as diverse as Kafka and early Jackson Pollock, new combinations are created from both constructed and discovered textures.
Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the theoretical limits of the zeitgeist. What starts out as vision soon becomes debased into a hegemony of temptation, leaving only a sense of decadence and the chance of a new beginning.As spatial replicas become frozen through studious and diverse practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the darkness of our future."
I love it.
