Reviews of products, books, and related media.
Oils, watercolors, fibers, glass, metals…these art mediums have long and distinguished histories that have been documented over the centuries. Polymer as an art medium may be in its infancy when compared to others, but that doesn’t make its history any less interesting to those of us passionate about its use.
So it was a treat and a pleasure to learn of the recently unveiled Polymer Art Archive, a site which chronicles a great deal of that history. Recognizing that “the medium of polymer would mature into a respected art form”, artist Elise Winters has devoted years to collecting a library of slide images and memorabilia that document the work of early ‘polymer pioneers’…those artists whose experimentation, creativity and vision have in turn birthed new generations of polymer artists.
