Total beginner

Don't laugh. Well... you can if you want to, who am I to say? How many works should you have under your belt before you attempt to write an "artist statement". If feel really intimidated by this, but I do want to get my work "out there" at some point. UGH!

Re: Total beginner

Mechelle, I don't think there's a "magic" number for the pieces of art under your belt. My personal philosophy is to write a brief statement for every piece you do (particularly if you have them online since your artist statements are how your work is found in the age of the text-driven search engines) and then look at the commonality of what you're writing for each. Chances are, you will have the beginnings of what your art is about.
