Only one week away – Sierra Art Trails 2016! Julia Bristow Jewelry will be exhibiting at Class, The Body Pastiche Studio
From their website: “In the art world, pastiche refers to a style that imitates another type of work and is usually meant to be flattering rather than a knock-off. A pastiche can be a collage or patchwork of images where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Your body is a collage, or a pastiche, of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components. These components are interconnected. You cannot achieve health by addressing only one part of the whole; optimal health and wellness is achieved when all of these components perform in concert.”
I will be exhibiting with two very unique and talented artists, Kathy Marks (#29) and Karen Tillison (#31).
Kathy Marks is a creative and uniquely gifted sculptor who works in mixed media using found and repurposed objects to create amazing pieces, each with so much interesting detail you have to spend some time on each piece to appreciate all of the intricacies of her designs.
From her website: “I combine found and re-purposed objects into subtle, delicate and inspiring compositions. Texture, color and contrast captivate me. The overlooked fragments I gather together tell a story. My work conveys a reflective calmness, often laced with gentle humor, and has been described as “Zen” in nature.
The small details and intricacies invite the viewer to slow down and take the journey with me. Each piece is meditative in nature, and the resulting works reveal dedication and mindfulness.”
Just look at the detail…
