A writing from the artist that explains there work to some degree, usually fraught with words that they nor the viewer know. It does also typically include formal elements of the work, themes, and contextual information. More typically these statements of less than a page leave readers more confused than when they viewed the artists work, as the artist explains their work as if they were on LSD.
That artist statement is amazing, I can't even tell if I am a self-aware human being right now.

Andy Warhol said that he did not need an artist statement, "there is nothing behind it".
