as presented in the lecture… consider how your statement might be able to stand alone from your work. (not that is has to). can i tell what i am going to see just by reading your words? this is just a good exercise to consider when writing a statement. i love what jodi provided in the last session — an ongoing list of writing, ideas, references. this is a brilliant way to keep thoughts in one place and come back to from time-to-time for a refresh.
 
enjoy the lecture! and let me know if you have any questions by tomorrow. i would like to record the next lecture on saturday… so knowing where your thoughts are, i will be able to gear the conversation.

I am always on the fence on whether I should put up a website using the free version of one of these web creators. I can’t seem to get past the fact of unseemly ads being on the website though, and so I never end up making one. Do you think it’s better to have a website up now with ads with the intention of paying for the full service to get rid of them down the road, or just wait until it can be done right? I feel a lot of pressure to have a website when it seems like everyone and their mom has one, but in my head ads on a website would look really unprofessional.
(Also, sorry I must have skipped over the last part of your post when I read it!)

many website providers offer free trials… but also, even with a free site, you usually have the option to make the thing public or keep it private. when working through the thing and building it, it is best to keep private until you are ready for a full launch.
 
i am a fan of wordpress… you used to need to be more tech savvy for them, but they have come a long way in template-driven building. a “personal” site (for 48$/yr comes with one year free domain name (also a yearly charge) and takes away ads. if you go this route i would be happy to give a wordpress tutorial to the group. again, you can trial it free indefinitely (on wordpress) and only pay the fee when you are ready to launch. this option does not allow for video tho… you need the premium version for that… which is 98$/year. still reasonable.
 
we can talk more about this on thursday.

Oh, I didn’t know you could set them up and keep them unpublished.
$48 a year is probably the cheapest I’ve seen. I think I’ve only been aware of Wix and SquareSpace, and they are both so expensive. I will look further into WordPress for sure then!
Thanks, John!!

Thanks so much for the statement feedback (I know it’s a LOT). I really appreciate your thoughtful edits/suggestions. Fresh eyes, not matter how long we do this, are so important and appreciated.

Here are my small, medium, and large statements (also attached below as .docx):
 
S – Although he loves the sun, the potato must be buried if he is going to live.
 
M – The humble potato, at once both a harbinger and savior of death. Like Icarus, too close to the sun and the potato dies, eyes still reaching. If I remove the green can I save it? If I had removed the green could I have saved you?
 
L – Who knows death better than the potato, who has ended and caused famines, who is so prone to disease and demise, who feeds the multitudes with its tubers, but can kill you with a taste of its greenery? Green is a symbol of prosperity and growth, but not necessarily for the potato. Green in a potato reveals the development of the toxin solanine, a defense mechanism to ward off pests and disease. Left to develop this mechanism eventually kills the potato, a consequence of light exposure. A potato cannot live in the light; although it tries. Like Icarus, too close to the sun and the potato falls. To live, a potato must be buried.
I grow potatoes above ground in vain, watching the green grow beneath the skin. Eventually they stop turning green and blacken with rot. I replace the dead with fresh tubers with fresh eyes seeking sun knowing I will ultimately get the same result.

Just realized, I completely forgot to add a residency section… pretend that’s there 🙂
 
edit: I now realize I accidentally brought in my employment history instead of my residency section… please pretend the employment section is a residency section…

Hi everyone! Attaching my cv as a Word doc and the pdf – pdf is quite a bit different because I like InDesign a lot more than Word 🙂
 
One sentence statement:
Invested in sonder and the temperature of rapid eye movement.
 
Three sentence statement:
I will paint for exhausted coffee grounds, gauzy memories, and the aged paper around your eyes. For worlds that remain immobilized in the viscosity of our perception. For dreams that are usually, probably, warm, but no one could tell you otherwise. 
 
Longer, and still fluctuating:
My work begins in personal, process-oriented reflections on the manifestation of viscous emotion and the dormant sense of self. This is an excavation of towers built on spinning vinyl and crooning voices. I am captivated with the intricacies of habitual defenses and unadvertised action; wholly struck by the ways in which we approach and avoid our internal and external routines – how those subconscious considerations affect the ways we extend ourselves to others.
There is so much beauty behind someone else’s eyelids. Fluid, empathetic abstraction has gradually become my language for elaborating the landscapes of colliding souls; for confronting memory; and for seeking out a more compassionate existence. I seek to understand how the clouds form under your microscope.
Degrees of observed and imagined relations laid bare through melting dialogues inspire unashamed nuance in color. Through painting, my marks wander in and out of an atmosphere of affection – each one part of my ongoing attempt to comprehend gossamer idiosyncrasies that distinguish us as individuals while irrevocably linking us to one another.
