the First Cut | Artist Paul Farmer

IMG_0077Along with Jim Bixby, of 828 Design, I was able to take a beautiful drive down to the Bascom Center for the Arts in the Highlands yesterday to attend the opening reception of artist Paul Farmer’s new work. Paul was the Winter Artist in Resident at the center. His work for this show was an experimentation of paint as a sculptural medium. Paul CompInitially, he would compose layers of paint on glass. Once the paint dries he cuts the paint from the glass and then reassembles it on to wood panels creating something new with sculptural dimension. Sometimes the compositions are purely play and other times he captures social statements in abstract form. The show runs on the lower level of the Bascom until March 7th. Enjoy!IMG_0067
