Art DisplayThroughout the month of December, Parker Library is showcasing spin artist Bob Paulson.
Bob Paulson lives in Lone Tree, CO and began creating spin art 3 years ago after he had a dream of creating a spin art store. Bob explains spin art as an abstract art created by fluid dynamics and motion. He began by taking apart an old clothes dryer and designing his first machine to create spin art. Since the first prototype machine was made, Bob started using a woodworking router and now is experimenting with a three foot floor fan on its side.
Most of the media Paulson applies paint to he finds at the Habitat for Humanity Restore and other random items he has found to upcycle. If it has a flat surface he can spin it. He has spun t-shirts, tiles, glass, canvas, cabinet doors, Mardi Gras masks, and even cookies! Bob shares his love of spin art with his kids, ages 3 and 5, and friends of all ages.
Paulson had the opportunity to showcase his spin art with the Denver and Chicago RAW Artists Organization in 2013 and 2014.
