To professionally pitch your work to galleries, tender for commissions, apply for residencies or grants, or submit work for awards, you need a high quality artist statement that speaks of all that is in the heart and soul of you and your work, and in every fibre of your being. Preferably in three paragraphs or less.
Understandably this is tricky. How do you remain objective when you are so deeply connected to the work? How do you know what to tell and how much is too much? Objectivity and reason are the first challenges to address, and it is rare we can do this about ourselves.
This is why you need to outsource your artist statement.
Dragonfly Trading has a collaborative service that is made up of an ongoing dialogue with you about your work and your business. This helps us to learn about you, your work and know all we need to, so then we can write you the best artist statement possible. First step is a conversation – what you have, what you need, and how much you want to spend. Next we work together to develop something that says just what you want to say, and even the things you didn’t know you could.
