Why artist statements help

A great reflection on how an artist statement can actually help, without sounding pretentious, obscure or condescending from Hyperallergic:

“I challenge artists to stop looking outside for language and to start digging on the inside for why they do what they do. No one else knows what gets you up in the morning and makes you finish a painting on the way to your day job, or what problems you’re trying to solve in the world by depicting characters a certain way, or why you found that imagery compelling.”
