      I think the art shows that you can use different things to make a work of art.

      I am really excited about this art. I am fascinated by how pieces of hockey equipment could be reused to create such beautiful work. I can honestly say that I have never thought of hockey equipment as beautiful. What an awesome way to take materials designed for one purpose and turn them into something completely different.

      this work of art makes me feel like I’m in a very colorful place and when I look at this piece I visualize what it would be like to be there and what fun activites I could do! When I see art it makes me think about why the artist painted that piece!

      The last one reminds me of driving up to North Bay to our cottage. There are so many trees and stars at night.

        Wow! Yes, I do get a lot of inspiration from up North, in Algonquin Park like the Group of Seven! What are some new names you would give these pieces…go ahead. Get goofy! I do everyday at the studio 🙂

      I’ll just point out that Liz is also a goalie… and we are just the most artistic players, I guess.

    Liss Platt – Puck Painting 

    Liss Platt – Puck Painting

    The puck paintings (click the link above) are made by shooting hockey pucks at a white, goal-size (4’ x 6’) surface. Permission by the artist to post has been granted.  The puck rubber leaves different marks based on the speed and angle of the shot, and compositions are determined by building up the density of shots in particular areas of the painting’s surface.
