Artist Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT, AKA THE KEN RUMBLE EXPERIENCE

Writing, Artist StatementKen Rumble

Lately, I’ve been applying for a lot of grants and artist residencies, and as a result, I’ve had to do a lot of writing about myself.  Most of the time these exercises are actually pretty useful and even fun; the great advantage of working on a project that I deeply care about — in this case my novel and writing generally — is that it is often easy to talk passionately and at length about it.  I also find that answering the questions in the applications gives me some insight into what it is I’m up to.
