I think all visual artists have to construct an artist’s statement at some point in their careers, but I’ve rarely come across a writer’s statement; at least, nothing more than a brief end-bio or article byline. True, artist’s statements often sound trite and self-absorbed and more often than not they’re simply a means to an end, but I really think that everyone should write one nevertheless. If not for a grant application, then as a pure and private job interview. Are you sure know what you’re doing?
