ARTIST STATEMENT: Artist Statement Scott Endsley Artists make art to destroy and create new worlds. Good art should transform you. I make art to make sense of myself and my world. When I am making art I leave this world and fly. Art should inspire you. Art has its own life. Art should be powerful. Without art you do not have a culture. Art is a life connector. There are very few artists in the world, most people who call themselves artists, are really designers. They make nice designs. However, they do not have a Vision. To be an artist you must be willing to take risks. I want my art to be as powerful as an orgasm. I want orgasms of color shape and line. I want people to be moved when they see my art. I want the same feelings to arise when you see my art, as you would get from a beautiful lover. I begin with a line, that turns into a shape, which takes up space, and begins to make a world of its own. I begin with a known entity, then I try to let new rhythms, and patterns emerge. I begin a dialogue with the material I am working with, and the material begins to speak to me. Lately I have been making sculptures using toy animals, clay resin, on stone. With these pieces I am trying to kill mediocrity with humor. I find the pieces to be funny Art has its own language A language that speaks of truth and beauty. Art is very seductive. Artists are the shamans of a culture. Art can be medicine for pain and loss. Art helps you to heal, art is transformative. My work is influenced by Chitra Neogy, the “long body” Hi Mom and Dad
