I collect and work with raw gem stones. I was researching Tourmaline’s healing properties and Vanadium is why its natural chrome properties do not fluoresce under UV light. The sentence that grabbed me was, “stops Tourmaline from fluorescing.” I became obsessed with the idea. I have no idea why one would want to stop Tourmaline from fluorescing. I figured it was a science thing beyond my scope. I rabbit-holed it further wondering why? Perhaps someone carrying or wearing Tourmaline could face unwanted detection by an impromptu fluorescing? My brain broke or I had a deadline and landed here; Do NOT stop my Tourmaline from fluorescing! How dare you.
Passer des Fruits series: I have been collecting titles of meaning since last year. This series is a departure from my usual practice of waiting for the painting, like a baby or beloved pet, to tell me their name. Instead of intuiting shape, then finding a title, I went the other way and let the title’s intent begin the work.
