I've been playing around with my artist statement lately, for various projects. This is what I've written for my EAST application.
Working outdoors between a garden bed and a chicken coop, I use time, weather, and organic matter to create encaustic and oil abstract work. Intense weathering and repeated building/destruction of the surface captures time in passing, simultaneously degrading notions of a proper picture plane and gently mocking the cult of the image. These are not paintings, these are temporal objects.

We'll cut them up, regurgitate them & publish them. If the alleged words are adamantine we'll publish at face value & let them simmer.
