Here are 4 cards from one of my "Roladex Art Book" Series. I was thinking of entering a juried exhibit for paper artists but missed the deadline. (too much going on in my life right now)
That got me thinking. One of the reason I hate entering juried exhibits are all the requirements for submitting an artist statement. So, I decided to generate one from Chat GPT instead. I think it did a pretty good job. What do you think? (No one reads it anyway!)
"As a mixed media artist, I am fascinated by the process of transforming disparate materials into cohesive and captivating works of art. My work is a testament to the power of experimentation, as I constantly seek out new techniques and mediums to incorporate into my pieces.
For me, the act of creation is a deeply personal and cathartic experience. Each piece I create is a reflection of my own inner world, a tangible representation of the emotions and ideas that swirl within me. Through my art, I strive to connect with viewers on a visceral level, sparking an emotional response that transcends language and culture.
My artistic style is heavily influenced by the natural world, and I draw inspiration from the colors, textures, and patterns found in the environment around me. I am particularly drawn to the rugged beauty of the American West, and many of my pieces incorporate elements of the landscape and wildlife that inhabit this region.
In my mixed media work, I aim to create a sense of depth and complexity, incorporating layers of texture, color, and meaning into each piece. By combining materials like fabric, paper, and found objects, I create a rich tapestry of visual and tactile experiences that invite viewers to explore and engage with my art on multiple levels.
Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to create work that resonates with viewers, evoking a sense of wonder, joy, and introspection. Whether through bold, colorful abstracts or intricately detailed collages, I strive to create art that speaks to the heart and soul of those who experience it."

Carol, I love your art in all its forms. You are so creative and your desire to explore leads you on some wonderful journeys. Now, Carol, I wrote those words from my heart and mind. Would they mean as much coming from artificial intelligence? Beware my friend before tech turns its cold eye away from writers and onto visual arts. If nobody reads artists statements (I guess I am an exception) then have some fun with it, be creative! Thank you for sharing your work and your words about it, the words you came up with from your own human self!

Your ability to capture something as striking as the daffodils is truly a gift. Also your artist statement is magnificent. As for anyone reading artist statements: I've noticed that the more ephemeral the statement, and the less 'artsy' the artwork, the higher the prizes awarded in competitions. Art made for competitions becomes like runway clothing - just for show - who would ever put it on?
