Below is a video from our Surface and Materials class that takes place on Monday mornings with instructor Nicholas Stewart! In this new 2015 class we explore with creating different surfaces in our artwork using various materials. The class has been putting thought into a diverse surface to paint on. This is only the beginning. We took slabs of clay and created a relief carving; which was then filled with plaster and molded. We changed the carving each time we filled the mold to create a sense of time or change in the layout/composition. MORE to come on this project!

“There are very few straight lines in nature, so when you see them it is likely that they are man made. It seems that those straight lines always fail in the face of nature. I like to find that place where straight lines begin to erode and try to play with the random chaos of nature and the attempted control when man takes hold of it.”
