Refraction Art recently caught up with multi-media artist Meryl Pataky for a Q & A:
RA: To start, I’m intrigued by your choice of medium. Among many other materials, you often use neon. Why?
MP: I suppose what initially drew me to it was the glow of it. When people ask “why neon?”, I usually tell them that I am drawn to tedious processes. It’s really annoying but I keep doing it to myself. I’ve noticed that I like for my materials to provide me with a certain resistance. My specialties are in neon and metal arts. Both materials provide various levels of resistance during the creative process, making the end result more rewarding.
