glass as a metaphor
By jamie vanhorn
Jamie VanHorn is in her fourth year at Millersville University studying Fine Arts with a concentration in printmaking and drawing. Jamie is interested in portraying fragility in her artwork and decided to take it a step further and do an independent study that dealt with working with glass during her senior year. Fragility plays a part in Jamie’s artwork because of her own bones being fragile themselves and she wanted to explore substrates that could break as easily as her. She created images in plexiglass, did performative acts with glass bottles, and created small versions of her legs using glass bottles. The skills she acquired are something she plans to use in her future art making. After graduating, Jamie plans on getting her masters in art therapy and continuing creating pieces.
