Personal statements are tricky for artists because they force one to leave the ambiguous arena of feelings and personal interpretation, and enter the concrete world of specifics.
For me (though I accept that this isn’t universal, nor should it be) art is about life enhancement and enrichment. Beauty, growth, and greater understanding of life’s mysteries are the bedrock of my work.
I expect viewers to take from it whatever they like, either to smile and move on, or to relate to the profound ‘other meanings’, which are explicit or implicit in the work.
