I believe that my art is my statement. That art speaks for itself. Each individual who takes the time to properly view art will find their own narrative within the art work.
If the making of the art is a creative expression to make a concept more concrete, personalize abstractions, and affect attitudes by involving emotional as well as intellectual responses. It may well be a journey of discovery for the artist. Then I believe that the art should be a journey of discovery for the viewer, as well, and no amount of artistic verbiage, concealed in the guise of an "artist’s statement" should distract, direct or deceive the viewer.
