If an artist/art student, my primary medium or mixed media is:
Painting, Assemblage, Jewelry, Other
I have the need to create everyday. Often, I find wonderful items on walks----like rusted metal discs, broken parts, sometimes items from trash piles(can you believe it??!!). I incorporate these treasures into my works. Painting is so necessary....
If you're an artist/art student, don't forget to add a brief artist's statement and photos of three of your art works to either your "comment wall" or "text box." This is your basic St. Louis Art Directory information. Later you may add images, videos, post a blog, and much more.
Life can be reflected in art. Over forty years of memories and experiences help to form my works. Often a found treasure will end up in a collage, or in the body of one of my creations. My current works are a culmination of ground papier-mâché, fibers, and vestiges of an entertainment career. Retired records and musical instruments are taken to a new realm. Spare parts are woven into new projects. This is my favorite way to recycle paper and to utilize discarded objects. The nature of the materials that I use and the drying process itself is often unpredictable. I have always had a passion for paint. It allows me to reveal the desired aspect and detail of my unique works. My journey continues as I find solace in creating my alternatively recycled art.
Cool! Congrats on the sale. I have a gig on Friday night, so I will have to see the show in St. Peter's another time. I will keep you posted on the Soulard show. We are thinking of altering the theme in lieu of recent news. Enjoy the show!
I have been doing a lot more photography lately. I'll be in a show at the St. Peters Art Center that opens this friday and there's a juried show at the Foundry that I plan on entering as well. I just saw the Call for the next Soulard show so I'll have to see what I can put together before the deadline. My last piece sold so now I have to come back....lol. Good luck and take care until the next time we talk.
