There comes a point ( or many) in any artists life and career where he or she has to write a statement. It can be for a competition, an application or even just to have to hand for those interested in reading it.
I have gotten to that point, yet again and I have to say for me it is one of those things you slowly improve at but will never fully get to terms with. Finding the right words to describe your art be it painting or pottery, in a way so that it is comprehensive to others, is no simple task. I find myself feeling as if squeezing my brain for the right words to seep out.
Having said that, when you finally do find the words to describe your art after minimizing the amount of art lingo, that sense of contentment makes it all worth it!
