There is no denying that art from a given time in history or a distinct geographical location can offer insights into a culture that we would otherwise have no knowledge of. But sometimes art tells us more about the artist than the society and culture that surrounds them. Therefore it is arguable that we are constantly engaging with an Artist Statement whenever we are looking and/or engaging with an artwork – whether it is created purely for aesthetic reasons, for portraying the rich complex beauty of the natural world, to make bold, ugly, raw statements that are unsettling, challenging and far from beautiful.
It is, therefore, clear that artists have many different roles, but no matter what medium they use, or what style they explore…they all share the same purpose: to make a statement! through art that is beautiful, art that is political, art that is accessible, art that challenges, art that is expressive and art that is cryptic.
