Bubble Art Featured At Westfield Mall

bubbleartkoiThe Santa Clarita Arts Commission challenged artists to create artwork to celebrate the 50th Birthday of Bubble Wrap.  Six artists from the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association (SCAA) designed fun bubble wrap art for this contest.


“Bubble-licious, All Bubbles Are Not Created Equal” opened on October 19 and will be on exhibit until January 5, 2011.  The show is located in the area designated for art shows (outside Sisley Italian Kitchen) located in Westfield Mall.

The artists from the SCAA represented shared their inspiration and techniques.

bubbleartFieryFallFiery Fall – Sandy Fisher: “I pressed plastic wrap to the surface of the entire sheet of watercolor paper, which was wet from an initial wash of paint in both warm and cool colors. Using the negative painting technique, where an artist creates the shape of an object by painting around it rather than painting the object directly, I defined the tree and the shrub.  The foliage was painted directly on the bubble wrap and then applied to the paper. My goal was to have the viewer experience an intensified and abstract reality of fall foliage.”


BubbleartclotheslineThe Clothesline – Idelle Okman Tyzbir: “The concept for this art piece for the 50th anniversary of bubble wrap is old and new.  Fifty years ago the welded metal clothesline was prevalent.   So much of our current world involves plastic. I felt bubble wrap and plastic grass were a good contrast with the permanence of the metal clothesline.” Idelle teaches elementary school art, metal sculpturing at College of the Canyons, (COC); fine art with the ‘Los Angeles Education Through the Arts’, and art welding at the COC Junior High Summer Institute.

BubbleartSpringFlingSpring Fling – Laurie Finkelstein: “My bubble wrap piece is a carefree interpretation of organic elements. In addition to two types of bubble wrap, I used wire, beads, rice paper, and various textiles.” Finkelstein is an acrylic and mixed media artist inspired by nature with texture and color being the driving forces behind her paintings.  She has studied art at the Otis Art Institute, California State University at Long Beach and through private instructors.



BubbleartVanessaVanessa Bubble Goes Shopping –  Georgette Arison: “I love translating that glitter into my artwork with great zeal by using 3D fabric paint. My work is very colorful and vibrant and I find myself painting on everything. I have a line of wearable art clothing that has crossed the line to fine art on clothing so people refer to me as a walking advertisement to art.”




bubbleart50_years50 years- Jason Moran: “I made a sculpture using nothing but bubble wrap and spray adhesive. I cut several 5’s and 0’s and glued the layers together until it was 5-6 inches thick. Years was made the same way. I used some glue to keep them together. I seek creative ways to express my imagination — to capture unique images of subjects that have become, in a way, very complacent and mundane, provoking thought and emotion.”

Koi Pond and Kaiku Poem – Patricia O’Hearn:  (picture at top of story) “I layered bubble wrap over shades of blue to represent a pond.  Then I arranged a collage to cover it — that included construction paper koi, moss, rocks, twigs, and lily pads.”   She added a Japanese haiku poem about koi. “I have been drawing, painting, and crafting my entire life.” She describes her style as California Impressionism. O’Hearn enjoys the camaraderie and idea-sharing of plein air painting with other artists.
