Walking the many galleries within Crystal Bridges Art Museum, I’ve been struck by the variety of ways artists express their feelings, make commentaries, speak out.
Art displayed here is by contemporary American artists. There’s no limit to how these creative minds express themselves through art.
It’s joyous and jolting.
A piece that caused me to linger is titled Unraveling, by Ursula von Rydingsvard. The medium used is cedar and graphite, not something generally associated with unraveling.
I admit that at times in the past ten months I’ve felt like I was unraveling.
Today we attended a drop-in art making session. Led by artist Edra Soto, we used her medium – glass bottles – to create. We used modeling clay, epoxy and a glue gun to make art. After creating shapes using the clay, we affixed them to a bottle. I chose to make free-form shapes to create my version of Unraveling.
I anticipate I’ll have a solo show in the near feature with my solo piece.
