B. Corey Johnson is a South Florida artist specializing in gold and metal leaf with chemical oxidation techniques. He has been honing his skills as a gilder over the last 20 years in the picture framing industry and through multiple restoration projects, and has been using those skills to create his unique art medium.
In this session, Corey discusses the process by which he creates his artwork and the philosophy behind why he creates them. He offered a live demonstration of a few chemical patinas and shared some finished pieces and works in progress. Think of it less like a lecture and more like hanging out with the artist. Grab a drink, and stay a while.
