Making it Stick!
In addition to creating the movable, magnetic Fraglets Art, I create a similar art form that is more permanent. Sans-Colle Collage (also known as "Masking Tape Art") are colors and textures painted on surfaces that have a sticky backing, so you can cut, peel, and stick them and create your own collages using my painted colors.
Fraglets® Art is an art form of magnetic assemblages, placed and layered on surfaces that will hold the painted magnetic shapes in place. The concept for this art form emerged from working with patients in health care settings and wanting to inspire creativity, reduce stress, create beauty, and make it fun and accessible to people of all abilities. The result was magnetized shapes, hand painted and cut into organic shapes that can be arranged, layered, and rearranged to your heart’s content.
Metal surfaces hold them in place. With Fraglets Art, you needn’t know what you are going to do before you start, because you can experiment, undo, and not worry about making a mistake. Make your art permanent by photographing or framing it, or keep it flexible by letting the pieces reflect your changing moods and style.
Like any creative process, you can easily get into THE ZONE, learn to go with the flow, and see where it takes you. Work with what you’ve got and piece it together as the spirit moves you.
Each piece is hand-painted in the artist’s studio in Vermont.
Because everything you work with is unique, what you create is even more so. Just like you. Find your mettle!
