Chandler’s polymer experiments

Gera Scott Chandler's lantern experiment

Gera Scott Chandler fearlessly fuses polymer clay with digital photography, canvas, silk, inks, acrylics and found objects to create textured three dimensional interpretations of the mood and spirit of her west coast Canadian landscapes. Gera often incorporates beachcombing ephemera into her compositions.

It was her Arbutus mixed media collage on canvas in the Synergy exhibit that helped fuel recent experiments by other artists in combining liquid polymer and fabrics. Her research and development is constant (the lantern at left is a recent example).

Chandler's resin and polymer ring

Gera has moved on to combining polymer and resins and offers the results of her experiments for comparison shoppers. She has a way of bringing remarkable colors to polymer and she’s working to enhance those colors further with resin.

Following Gera’s work is like being on an adventure that leads from the beach to the garden to the studio.

    Gera’s Synergy piece, and the accompanying text, including “It’s not what you look for, it’s what you find.”, were among my favorite works in the Synergy exhibit. The detail was mesmerizing.

      When I see art like this I know I need to experiment more. Break away. Awesome work Gera

        Gera is such a great inspiration! She fearlessly pushes the envelope and takes polymer clay to new and wonderful heights. And she always takes the time to offer her advice and wisdom. Gera is a true trailblazer! Yeah Gera!!!
