ARTIST STATEMENT

Rationale​: The purpose of this artist statement is for you to explain,


clarify, and provide reasons for the choices you have made in the creation of
your project.

Instructions:​ For each of the categories provided, you need to make a


thorough accounting, in point form and short sentences/paragraphs, of the
how and why of the choices you have made on your multi-modal project.
By looking at the template below, you can see (roughly) the amount of
space you are expected to fill when you provide your answer.

You may choose to type up your Artist Statement in a word or


google doc using 12 point Georgia Font; if you do this, do NOT
just email it to me! I will not mark it until you provide me a
printed copy. You may also choose to print this from my blog
as .pdf and write NEATLY directly onto this form.

V. Modality Section of Artist Statement ​(Modality is the mode, the
way, you interpret the scene through your art).
USE POINT form!

Modality: (WHY).
(e.g.Visual Artists: why did you choose the materials you did?Why the
technique? etc. Actors: Why the blocking? The delivery? The beats
and pacing? Etc. The music/choir people: Why the measure? The
instruments? The technique?Etc. The media: why the camera angles?
The lighting? The filters? Etc)
1. Explain why you chose the modality and materials you did. Why do
you feel this modality is the best way to address the task assigned?​ 3
Reasons WHY.​ List them as 1.,2., & 3.

Modality Why you chose this modality? How does the


chosen modality you chose help convey meaning?
e.g Water colour I chose water colour because it is quite translucent when applied,
one can see through it. This helps to show that in the balcony scene,
the emotions of both Romeo and Juliet are obvious; they are not
hiding anything about their feelings.

2. Modality: (HOW). ​Explain how you went about creating the project
in this modality; what techniques and materials did you use and how
did you use them.
​3 Explanations HOW.

Modality How did you USE the modality choice to


chosen emphasize meaning? (explain technique)
e.g. Water Colour Here you will explain HOW you use water colour, are some areas
darker, lighter? How did you do this? Why did you do this?
