Your artist statement should contain what you paint, how you paint, and why. Art evicts an emotion in fine arts. So think about what your intent is as an artist. Here’s how I break down my Artist Statement:
A lot of my art work uses the “Painterly” Style. Painterly style is defined as works of art where you can see brush stokes or tools marks used to paint. Artist such as Matisse in the Industrial Revolution also painted in this style.
Some of my work also displays “Linear” Style. This is defined as paintings with an outline or filled in shapes. Keith Haring was well known for his linear art and contour drawing.
I also usually aim for Absolute clarity in my paintings, meaning that each subject is defined. Leonardo Da Vinci painted his Last Supper painting with absolute clarity.
My general movement in art is Contemporary, it’s a combination of concepts, methods, subjects, and materials. One known artist is Freud who painted in this style.
My art is also Representational. I paint things that are clearly identifiable in real life. Monet was a representational artist as well.
My also paint genre art. Which is ordinary people doing every day things. Vermeer also painted in this style.
My art is mainly decorative. Picasso’s art was Decorative.
Therefore, I am a Decorative Contemporary Genre Painterly Artist. I focus on Representational art of New York. I work with Acrylics on Canvas in Linear style. I paint my vision of my Society’s Culture.
