SPARK on the Circle has a new Artist in Residence, Brittany Fukushima!
Over the next 10 weeks, Fukushima has plans for works that will be centered around our five senses—focusing on smell. Fukushima has planned an on-going scavenger hunt, working with found materials like leaves, coloring pages and even scratch and sniff stickers. Plans will grow as Fukushima spends time at the Circle. So be sure to continue to check back on circlespark.org as they add to the menu of fun to be had at SPARK on the Circle.
About the artist: Brittany Fukushima is an Indianapolis-based painter and teaching artist who uses their practice to interpret their environment. Drawing and painting become a means to investigate the natural world, express the intangible, and to present alternate ways of seeing. Recently, they have experimented with paint making using foraged pigments. Teaching is an integral part of their process as it keeps them in community and provides fresh perspectives. Brittany currently teaches at the Indianapolis Art Center and is a graduate of Herron School of Art and Design. They have exhibited throughout Indianapolis and Chicago and their work has been featured by Butter, WFYI and Pattern Magazine.
