The Guetta Fringe – Update on Our ‘New’ Form of Artistic Installation…

Share

You may recall on 19th June 2017, one of our many uber cool editors Roger Guetta announced that he had a ‘big idea’ involving everyone in the Mobile Arts Community. Guetta explained “It involves a collective creation. A form of artistic installation which can be sent to whomever wants it hung along their next gallery show, at their next home party or at the next Mobile Arts Festival wherever and whenever that might be“. This creation is our very own mobile art quilt. All participants simply travel to a tee shirt printing outlet with a 4”x4” piece of non stretchy fabric and a file of a favourite image. (If this is too much of a hassle, everyone send their image directly to Guetta, he will then print on fabric).

Also, news just in from Kate Zari Roberts via Guetta is thus: “The Director/Curator of the Month of Photography emailed me and said he will definitely find a place for our quilt so schedule it for Denver in March/April 2019 with time enough ahead for shipping and installation“.

Chatting with Guetta earlier today, he has asked me to notify of you all of an extension to his original deadline. The deadline has been extended to 7 July 2017 – more reason, for more entries. So come on, lets do this!

Tips on Writing an Artist Statement

Share

I am often asked to offer tips to help photographers write their artist statement. I am well aware that it is often viewed as one of the least pleasurable parts of presenting your work. It is crucially important though for you to work through this. There are positives, it will offer a valuable experience to reflect on your own work and various aspects of your practice.

When drafting your artist statement remember that it is your words that are trying to express your art, in your absence. The artist statement should be concise and well written in a conversational language. Try not to over complicate it. Consider your audience, there is a subtle difference in writing style depending on whether you’re writing for a comercial gallery and their audience or if it’s part of a university application for a PhD. Be modest about what you’re trying to achieve.

Essentially, when considering writing an artist statement the only person you need to question, is yourself. Ask yourself these questions:

What is your motivation for creating this body of work?

What do you  intend for the viewer to determine after scrutinising your work?

When considering your competition (artists that are creating images with comparable subjects), why do your images stand apart?

How do your photographic/art techniques communicate your concepts?

What questions do you feel your work raises in an audience?

Who are you influenced by, photographically or artistically?

 

I hope this helps! Good luck.
