Marvelous Catered Bathing Suits

Most of my art relies on random choices of images and words. Even though they seem random I think there is always a subconscious reason for why I choose the words and images I do. Usually I figure it out later.

Is that too art-speak? For some reasion I find that artist statementy art-speaky stuff really off-putting and bull-shitty. You know, where people describe their art as so meaningful and important like "my art comes from the passionate troubled visions while representing the dichotomy of commercialism vs. human tragedy and the existential crisis of the domain of man." (I just made that up, but hey if it were someone's real statement I might actually want to see the art ha ha). I don't know why that annoys me so.

Even if you aren't one of those blowhard types, writing about art always comes off as a little pompous.

That annoys me too! If I have to read a dissertation, think about it walk away and come back to the art to get it, I'm through.
