Chandler’s painterly techniques

Victoria, BC’s Gera Scott Chandler ends our week in a sea of polymer clay flowers. “She Could Only Choose One” is Gera’s largest piece to date. Composed on fibreboard, it’s 16″x19″(46x40cm) and weighs 11lbs. (5kg)!

Most recently, Gera’s been working with polymer on 5″x7″ stretched canvases, developing her own distinctive look and refining her painterly polymer techniques.

Weekend thought

If you’re in the mood for a bit of creativity talk, you’ll enjoy this talk by “Eat, Pray, Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert. She reframes our thinking about creativity and suggests that instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius. It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.

    I always enjoy following Gera’s work through her blog. I’m glad you chose this one for Friday’s post!

      I love the detail that Gera puts into her work! WOW! 11 pounds!!! That’s a lot of polymer clay. Most of my work is jewelry or canes so that much clay on one project blows my mind just a bit!

            Hi Cynthia- my most favourite art school compliment was when my colour theory instructor told me my approach was “painterly”- as I was in ceramics and she was a painter, I was on Cloud Nine for days! Your post about my work meant a LOT!

            Thanks so much!

            on Cloud Nine again…..gera
