Sample Artist Statement | Art school resources - ArtStudy.org The following artist statement examples are provided as samples you can emulate. Don't copy them, but use them as inspiration to sculpt your own statement using ideas and words. Jonathan H. Dough - Artist Statement My artwork takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. Often times these themes are combined into installations that feature mundane domestic objects painted blue, juxtaposed with whimsical objects, and often embellished with stenciled text. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. Each project often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes and meanings. Millie Wilson - Artist Statement I think of my installations as unfinished inventories of fragments: objects, drawings, paintings, photographs, and other inventions. Molly Gordon - Artist Statement Knitting is my key to the secret garden, my way down the rabbit hole, my looking glass. Molly Gordon

Timorous Beasties Noted for its surreal and provocative textiles and wallpapers, the design studio Timorous Beasties was founded in Glasgow in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who had met while studying textile design at Glasgow School of Art. Timorous Beasties was shortlisted for the Designer of the Year prize in 2005. By depicting uncompromisingly contemporary images on traditional textiles and wallpapers, Timorous Beasties has defined an iconoclastic style of design once described as “William Morris on acid.? Typical is the Glasgow Toile. At first glance it looks like one of the magnificent vistas portrayed on early 1800s Toile de Jouy wallpaper, but closer inspection reveals a nightmarish vision of contemporary Glasgow where crack addicts, prostitutes and the homeless are depicted against a forbidding backdrop of dilapidated tower blocks and scavenging seagulls.

Tate Collection | Theo van Doesburg Dutch painter, architect, designer and writer. Little is known of his early life, but he began painting naturalistic subjects c. 1899. With the mobilisation of the Dutch forces following the outbreak of World War I, van Doesburg was sent to Tilburg near the Belgian front. Almost immediately he began to contemplate and organize a new periodical, De stijl: Maandblad voor nieuwe kunst, wetenschap en kultuur, not to be fully realised for another two years. In 1916 van Doesburg participated in the foundation of the artists' associations De Anderen and De Sphinx. He became increasingly involved in Dada activities, including the publication of four issues of Mécano (1922–3). From 1925 van Doesburg intended to build a studio-house.
