My artist statement follows in the footsteps of Gustav Klimt and Balthus. They both talked about their works and practice with the following words:
“I have the gift of neither the spoken nor the written word, especially if I have to say something about myself or my work. Whoever wants to know something about me -as an artist, the only notable thing- ought to look carefully at my pictures and try and see in them what I am and what I want to do.”
No Biographical details. Begin: Balthus is a painter of whom nothing is known. Now let us look at the pictures.
Regards, B. Balthus
It is these artists that have influenced my work and find myself relating to time after time. Below is the artist statement that I have appropriated to my practices and for my works:
To know my works is to know me And to know me is to know my works. Now let us look at the works. Regards.
