Makoto Tojiki makes cool statues from vertical strings of lights. After my most recent rant about artist’s statements, I’m going to present this blurb from his site without comment:

His most recent “No Shadow” series is inspired by the interconnectedness of light and shadow and how they can be manipulated and controlled. Tojiki begins his creative process by breaking down the light and the shadow to capture the essence of their symbiosis resulting in fleeting images that are as ephemeral and enigmatic as shadow itself.

The regular reader of my blog (Ha!) will know that I have a bit of an issue with artist’s statements. Mainly because they are a big, steaming pile of self-indulgent bollocks.

Charlotte Young is an artist. However, she also has the sense of self-awareness that most of her conceited colleagues lack, so her’s is great:

If you’ve already created your own boundary-destroying modern art, but are having trouble giving voice to the swirling maelstrom that is your raison d’etre, the Arty Bollocks Generator is the the tool for you.

My automatically generated statement perfectly captured the angst and melancholia that sparked my creative resurgence:

My work explores the relationship between emerging sexualities and midlife subcultures.

With influences as diverse as Nietzsche and L Ron Hubbard, new combinations are created from both orderly and random discourse.

Ever since I was a postgraduate I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of the universe. What starts out as hope soon becomes manipulated into a carnival of power, leaving only a sense of failing and the unlikelihood of a new order.

As shimmering replicas become frozen through undefined and academic practice, the viewer is left with a new agenda of the edges of our existence.
