To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist. ~ Robert Schumann
I’m a contributing artist for Art0Mat otherwise known as Artists in Cellophane. Basically, I create miniature 2D artworks that I mount on wood blocks. The art blocks are wrapped in cellophane and dispensed in vending machines. It is a great way to share art. ArtOMat offers these treasures to the general public at the mere sum of $5.00. In return, I receive a small monetary compensation and a great deal of satisfaction knowing by some measure, my contribution adds to the world of art collecting. Although I’m never sure where my art blocks will vend, I know a number of my pieces have recently vended at The Whitney Museum in NYC.
My new work is following my interest in animals and pet portraits in particular. These pet portraits speak to the heart of my interest in humanitarian efforts regarding animal rescue and the sanctity of animal life. Offering a glimpse into this work is my Dachsie Doodle shown here.
My tendency is to create 25 individual art blocks. I haven’t decided if this entire art block series will be only dogs. There are other animal ideas percolating in the back of my mind. You will have to tune into my blog to see samples from this series. If you happen to pick up one of my blocks from a machine, leave your comment on this blog. I would love to hear from you. xox :)
