  • Well done ! The best is the last one :)

  • It’s been cool to see his work evolve over the years. I’m always drawn to his more loose immediate fantastical work, as opposed to the more developed and polished pieces. The first one is incredible!

  • Ross

    Definitely the first, perfect amount of color and detail. Still the whole set is fantastic.

  • love the tecnic!

  • Jean-Luc Gallic

    I have to say I used to be a really big fan of James’ stuff after i got kindling for my birthday, and now his style has progressed into these beautiful pieces I still love his work, thanks jeff for posting

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.
