Linked and Inked
These two art displays show the work of multi-disciplinary artist and educator, Matisse DuPont. During the lockdown, Matisse began weaving chainmaille as a way to keep their hands busy. All the pieces you see before you are made of solid brass. Later, Matisse returned to visual arts to play with the fluid dynamic properties of acrylic inks last summer while recovering from an injury. Art is one of the greatest comforters and can help the maker get through difficult times and overcome challenges. Please enjoy!
