Making a Statement

Handmade Portraits: Greg Beauchamp a.k.a. Beauchamping from Etsy on Vimeo.

It was such a treat to watch this video this morning.
You can read more about the talented Greg Beauchamp here.

Yesterday, I had coffee with an artist-friend and we discussed the dreaded artist statement. I consider myself a fairly intelligent person and yet, I have a hard time understanding many of the artist statements out there. Lots of interesting adjectives and other contrived jargon leave me feeling lost. Is an artist statement meant to intimidate or confuse? I just don't get it.

Thank you Mr. Beauchamp for keeping it simple.
