This Artist's Statement Generator Is a Master of Artsy Mumbo Jumbo

Arty Bollocks Generator randomly generates artists statements

There's a subtle, um, art, to writing a compelling aritst's statement. In my experience as a reader of many, the only ones that really stick are either incredibly specific in their explanations of the work, or totally off the wall and outrageous. Most, though, throw around familiar terms from critical theory and art history classes, and end up stating virtually nothing, which is also what this handy Arty Bollocks Generator does. One begins thusly:

My work explores the relationship between new class identities and skateboard ethics.

And continues like so:

With influences as diverse as Camus and John Lennon, new combinations are generated from both explicit and implicit textures.

Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of relationships. What starts out as vision soon becomes corroded into a hegemony of greed, leaving only a sense of chaos and the prospect of a new beginning.

As spatial impressions become frozen through emergent and critical practice, the viewer is left with a glimpse of the limits of our condition.
