Very blessed to have one assemblage showing in Chico CA this month, September 7-27, 2018. At the Chico Art Center you can see a collection of wonderful art, and my work Brush of the Master : Relic One. https://chicoarts.org/cac/national-juried-exhibition/
Brush of the Master: Relic 1. This artwork began with a collection images and found objects. Inspiration stems from an inner guidance, and intuition. I begin each piece with these in mind and hand, begin to add subtract, layer each piece, and bring together the artwork. Combining religion and found objects, I craft assemblages that contrast several influences to create new ways of expression.
Think of the brush of the master in this manner:
Your Father, Grandfather, or loved one, has left you a special object. You place it in your dresser, and look at it from time to time. Viewing the object brings back warm memoires, and good feelings about that person.
Now, say, each morning you wake up you see this beautiful creation, and how wonderful it is. You marvel in its beauty. It takes your breath away, and you just look and stare. And the artist says to you: here is the brush I used to create this beautiful work.
Now, say, the brush is from God. And he says to you, “The Holy Spirit has given you my brush, go and create for you are my beloved one.”
