"Wasatch II" by Laura Edwards
Oil on Yupo
27" x 34"
We have but one artist that uses "Yupo" for their works and it has raised quite a stir among those who attended our artist exhibition last week. "What is Yupo"....has been the equivalent of "Where's Waldo" and we enjoy nothing more than questions concerning art.
What is Yupo - Yupo is 100% recyclable, waterproof, tree-free Synthetic Paper that is extruded from polypropylene pellets. (cool right?)
What are its attributes - Super-smooth, durable, wipes clean, waterproof, and it will not tear.
Which mediums can use Yupo - You can paint on it with watercolour, colored pencils, water soluble crayon, inks or acrylics.
As you can see, this is a somewhat new material for artists to create on, yet still unfamiliar to most. Laura's paintings may be created differently being that they are on board, canvas or yupo. It does not go without saying they are all equally impressive. If you have not yet been to, The Cooley Gallery, to view Laura's works; she is here through the end on November.
