The FAA is excited to announce ‘It’s an Abstract World’ Members Show at the Community Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom. The theme challenges FAA member artists to explore the joys of artistic freedom — whether via ‘abstraction’ or through a ‘looser’ rendering of their art.
It’s an Abstract World at the Community Gallery at 48 Natoma from
January 22 to March 25, 2021.
The exhibit is online – Enjoy! Available works may be purchased by contacting the gallery.
I'm a Folsom-based Maker and Artist. I create interactive, functional art using a variety of electronics, lighting, motion, and sound. I use a variety of materials and use 3D printing, laser cutting, metal work, and electronics for my creations.
My most recent work - a Spaceship In A Bottle - the spaceship in this bottle is crafted of metal, acrylic, rubber, and electronics. It features a solitary astronaut, viewing a vintage CRT (cathode-ray-tube) display that cycles through several different space-themed videos. The astronaut is on a hopeful journey home, but the ship is running low on supplies, and the engines at the rear flicker like a candle as the craft's fuel dwindles.
I teach a course at the Curious Forge in Grass Valley titled "Electronics for Artists", and teach Mechatronics at Sierra College.
