Confessions of an Artist
// Confessions of an artist
Is a series of artworks based on a questionnaire that was sent to my database of artists – friends, colleagues, acquaintances and random peers.
These are a selection of the top confessions which I felt reflected and added insight into artists; the way they work and reflect on themselves. Some were comical, some sad and some extremely honest. I liked the idea keeping these confessions a secret, something which was anonymous and private.
I selected one and turned the sentiment into a gif and a gifbox (iveneversoldanartwork).
