Writing the Artist Statement
Writing an artist’s statement doesn’t always rank amongst the artist’s favorite things to do, so this book by Ariane Goodwin is an excellent tool to get the juices flowing and help prompt any artist into producing a succinct written expression of their work. What is also useful and interesting about his book is that it will give the public or anyone who deals with artists on a variety of levels more of an insight of why artists may be reluctant to put feelings and motivations into words.
