Exploring experimental mixed-media painting and surface treatment techniques can be a wonderful way to change up your working process and approach. When you change your tools, media and surface, you add to your visual vocabulary in intriguing ways. I would like to share with you the process behind a recent piece I did as a live step-by-step demonstration for Studio Bridge through Visual Arts Passage, exploring experimental mixed-media techniques onto a multidimensional surface.

Visual Arts Center presents Bill Morrison: "Cycles and Loops" opening day

All events are subject to change due to weather or other concerns. Please check with the venue or organization to ensure an event is taking place as scheduled. Bill Morrison is one of the most accomplished filmmakers working today whose practice rescues lesser known and forgotten histories while investigating the fragile existence of celluloid materials. These ephemeral fragments ask us a deeply existential question: how do we preserve what cannot be preserved? In "Cycles & Loops," Morrison offers a response and demonstrates the possibilities for rebirth out of the chaos of decay.

I'll never get tired of chainsaw sculptures

Although there have always been macho people in the world of art, for some reason, we tend to forget them. Usually, the butch dudes gravitate towards literature more than the visual arts. I'm positive there's an equivalent of Ernest Hemmingway in painting, but I have no idea who that would be. Despite the continued deterioration of entrenched gender roles and the professions associated with them, there are still tons of jobs that get bracketed in society as "feminine." We're slowly trudging towards equality, but it'll take decades to remove some of the calcified perspectives about specific fields. To many unenlightened observers, art isn't neutral; it's femme- unless you're doing it with a chainsaw.

He wanted to put newer artists in the spotlight and bring attention to works not widely seen. Although the performing arts center has always highlighted the visual arts in displays, hosting the successful, well-attended show was a shift for the center.
