💥Some of our arts and craft supplies are secondhand. And we are so grateful for the contribution, as most of the donated supplies are used for our diy tutorials (Not forgetting how expensive supplies are these days). Like these sprays, perfect for diy upcycling projects! 🌞 Thank you for giving it a new purpose!
"There's no more fear
Your love has cast it all out"
"Back" side of this piece. As I noted on the "front" side post, I really thought about this piece as being two sided from the very beginning. In the layering process, I thought about how I needed to arranged the letters on each side such that the "o" in "no" and the "o" in "love" could over lap through all the layers and create this glowing window from either side.
Glowing light has also always been an important motif in almost all of my prior work. Before I started working with resin, I use to make oil paintings of glowing bokeh lights. While they were very pretty, the material didn't really make sense for the concept often. Trying to depict glow is often lack luster to something actually glowing. Part of my shift to resin as a material was being able to create authentic glow and incorporate real light into the work, rather than just a representation of light.
It's easy to get into a mode of creating art that is always a "re-presentation", because at this point in history almost everything we create is a synthesis of things before us and thus arguably not original. My desire though, as impossible as it might be, is to always push forward to create art experiences rather than mere art representations.
Happy Memorial Day! Hope everyone had a great long weekend! Photo by the talented David Joseph who is currently involved in and working on some really exciting projects. I couldn't be more proud to have him as part of the JBA team and can't wait to fill you all in on what he's been up to. Until then, follow along @thedjmc! 🇺🇸🇺🇸 #jessicabushart#mdw
