Something Wonderful is coming to the Harris Pavilion this summer. A larger than life outdoor figurative installation of strange and wonderful creatures.
Jortt’s vision for the show is to spark curiosity and inspire the community to believe that they too can create something wonderful, no matter how great, how big or how impossible it may seem.
Visit Something Wonderful for details, progress and to back this project.
My goal is simple, I want my art to make people smile.
I love being a fly on the wall and watching people’s reaction to my art. I’ll get the smiles I’m looking for as well as the puzzled head scratches, and I love listening to people’s interpretation of a painting. Occasionally, I’ll catch someone who seems totally engrossed in what I’ve done and is “connecting” with something about the piece. Watching people make that “connection” is the high point about being an artist, I’m not just communicating with someone through art; I’m giving that person a piece of myself that can’t be given in any other way.
