Wow - how privileged you've been to have a man like that in your life.
A true gift. My primary artist expression is art quilts, and of those,
primarily liturgical banners and hangings. The beads, holographic
plastic, gold and silver lame signify the breath of God in my work, too.
It's great to hear of symbolic reasons that sparkles are added.

Subject: a glitter story
Here in Little Rock, one of my art teacher friends had
a custodian at her school who made drawings. His name
was Eddie Lee Kendrick. His drawings were mostly about
religious subjects with an occasional drawing about
his life. He was "discovered" when an Arts in
Education administrator went to his custodial closet
to ask about a mop to clean up a paint spill. For
Mr. Kendrick, glitter represented the "holy spirit".
The Arkansas Arts Center had a show of his work here a
few years ago. Mr. Kendrick died of cancer before the
show opened. I was lucky enough to work with the arts
center and my friend who had known Mr. Kendrick on
curriculum supporting the show. The night Eddie Kendrick's
show opened here, the Arkansas Arts Center had one of the most
diverse crowds in attendence...The choir from Mr.
Kendrick's church performed...it was an amazing
night.The exhibit was also shown at the New Orleans
Museum of Art.
