S. P. Harper - Room 119

I paint cut gemstones on reclaimed materials. What begins as refuse is repurposed, transforming base materials into noble objects. Diverse mediums such as discarded tablecloths, wallpaper, graphic posters, upholstery fabric, paintings, canvases, commercial art, building and metal scraps are surface medium. By reforming and re-employing, the work fits into the Ecocentric Art Movement through bringing materials back to life. I mix the classical tradition of still-life painting with modernism. I paint jewels because they transfix and reflect.
