Bailey Idom is an artist from “All Over, Texas”. Born a Methodist preacher’s daughter, her family never stayed in one location for too long. She ended up in Lubbock in 2005 studying art at Texas Tech. During the moves growing up, Bailey developed a strong belief in the power of connection; through creating, she wondered about the possibilities that art could have when passed to someone else. Each glass piece represents the different layers of an individual while the transparency of the glass is what connects each one.
A printmaker by day and glassblower by night, Bailey continually explores the themes of transparency and poses the questions: What do we transfer to others within our life experiences?
What do we allow to be transferred to ourselves?
Heather's artwork represents raw moments of human emotion. Intense feelings such as ecstasy, bliss, release, or awe, can be embodied in things like the gaze of a woman, a glow in the dark, and the fluidity of colors and brushstrokes. Elements like this, and more create a dream-like presence that can release upon the viewer what she was feeling when she created a particular piece.
For certain pieces, she enjoys using analogous color schemes to further push a presence or emotion. Her brushstrokes too, will mirror the work. For example, a work that portrays sorrow may have heavy, downward brushstrokes. Many of her pieces have a surreal quality to them in order to shift the viewer some from what they see to what they feel. However, she ranges in style from photo-real to abstract simply because she enjoys the change and the challenge of trying new things. She uses mostly oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache, ceramic and ink. Some works are created in one sitting and others take months to complete depending on the medium and conceptual layers. She constructs her art, many times, during her own peaks of emotion in order to capture a single moment; like a holding of the breath, or when the light shines just right and a particular feeling is totally encompassed.
