Unconvincing Conceptual Approach

The photos aren't a disaster like some of the other work that shows up in this museum but I must say the artist's statement is totally incoherent and seems to have little to do with the work being show. I would say that the work looks a bit weak with the low resolution digital images but in spite of that there is a certain aesthetic interest in the work. Only it seems the artist is actually pushing more for a conceptual statement--which is so confused in relation to the text that I really don't know how to react to the work.
My advice would be to flee silly undeveloped conceptual skills which the artist doesn't seem to master and pursue the more humble approach of trying to make beautiful images--which, with more effort (and perhaps better equipment) this artist might have some talent!
