Bret shares his own Artist Statement on his Irish portfolio just to give listeners/readers an example on how developing an Artist Statement can focus you.
Irish Portfolio Artist Statement
“The mythic Irish landscape and its people have had a profound impact on one another. The Celts saw the land as a living source of wisdom, beauty and transformative spiritual power. Among the first to believe in the eternal nature of the human spirit they constructed monuments to death, rebirth and the cycles of the seasons and stars. Castles, fortresses and ruins are evidence of untold invasions and conflicts throughout a tumultuous history. These vestiges of the past continue to resonate through the countryside today. Beautifully poignant in the process of decay they tell their own story and possess their own mortality. Nothing that belongs to the earth is ever free from it. The sacred connection between the landscape of Ireland and its people has not disappeared over the centuries.” —Bret Culp
Overall Body Of Work Statement
“The transitory nature of existence binds everything in the material world. Careful observation reveals the beauty within each fleeting moment.” —Bret Culp
