Create an artist statement, bio & resume. by Alexandra Copley. what is an ARTIST STATEMENT?.
by Alexandra Copley
This is possibly the best way to get to the heart of why you took these photos. If you would love for someone to say “these photos bring sunshine to my home”, then you already have a pretty good starting point for your statement.Lead off with something like “I have done my job as an artist if these photos bring happiness and warmth to your home”.
Talk to yourself. Each time you start working on your art, tell yourself, "I will listen to my inner thoughts and capture them in my conscious mind". Ask yourself while you’re working, "What am I thinking at this moment?”
Your bio gets to the point. It’s not a place for you to share everything you’ve ever done or get into your personal life.
Your biography is the hint at the story of your life, not so much your art, but YOU. Where and when were you born, who are your parents (were they artists?), where and how did you grow up? What led you to an artistic path? Some artists do not want to share personal information with the public. How much you do is YOUR CHOICE!
