Artist Statement Generator

I've been working on writing an artist statment and a bio which may be needed for an upcoming project. Found this Artist Statement Generator and gave it a whirl just for fun.

CJ Kennedy

CJ Kennedy (°1955, Waltham, United States) is an artist who works in a variety of media. By focusing on techniques and materials, Kennedy often creates work using creative game tactics, but these are never permissive. Play is a serious matter: during the game, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation.
Her artworks never shows the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
Her works are characterised by the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of middleclass mentality in which recognition plays an important role. By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of middle class values, she considers making art a craft which is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality.
Her works are notable for their perfect finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship. CJ Kennedy currently lives and works in Sutton.
