Requiem – BVAA Climate Crisis Art Show

This is my final entry into the Blackstone Valley Art Association’s Climate Crisis art show. It’s a ~2 minute video. I thought with this being an online show that it was the perfect time to explore video art.

I owe huge thanks to Bob See for figuring out how to make it work safely and to Laura Cenedella for the inspiration behind the ending.

The Climate Crisis

Climate Change is all around us. Here are a few artwork items I’ve created over the past week, to prepare for a show on the theme of Climate Crisis with the Blackstone Valley Art Association.

I know the pandemic has us all distracted, but the climate is still getting worse. Even with so many people being home for the month of May, and so many factories being quiet, May was STILL the hottest May ever in human history that we know of. Even furloughing most of the planet didn’t make a dent.

Owl Chakra Lava Rock Bracelet

Lava Rock Chakra Bracelets

For my birthday I bought myself something I’ve always wanted – beading supplies to make lava rock chakra bracelets. So far I’ve made myself one with an owl, a Celtic heart, an elephant, and a shamrock. If you’d like one, they’re $10 each. I can also mix things up in a custom way. You can add essential oils to the lava rock if you want :). Lava! I love lava :).

Abstract Bicycle Gears Steampunk Cyanotype Handmade Unique Artwork 8×10 matted to 11×14

This cyanotype was created from bicycle gears in a Steampunk style, falling off into stark whiteness. The art can be hung vertically or horizontally.

This cyanotype is 8 inches x 10 inches in size. It is matted to an overall size of 11×14. It comes with the mat, backing, and a plastic bag which encloses them all.

A cyanotype is created by mixing 8.1% potassium ferricyanide and 20% ferric ammonium citrate. The substance is sensitive to light. I then paint a surface with that concoction and lay objects on top of the paper. The shadows created by those objects leave a pattern. Each cyanotype is a one-of-a-kind hand crafted work of art. I create each cyanotype by hand myself. Every cyanotype is unique.
