Body Art

Body art, a form of Performance art, includes the use of the artist’s body. Often shocking or disturbing in nature, these pieces of art are immediate and intimate for both the viewer and the artist, eliminating the anonymity of both participants. In such cases the art is performed in a public space, such as a gallery, or is presented through photography and video that was produced in private. Ritual and the presence of pain are often components of Body art. Vito Acconci, perhaps one of the best-known artists working within the realm of his own body as subject, introduced elements of autoeroticism into his long performances in galleries. The ultimate in pain as a subject was accomplished by Chris Burden, who crucified himself on a Volkswagen; he was also intentionally shot in the arm by an assistant and splashed with burning alcohol. Bruce Nauman has presented a more playful side to Body art, with his photographs of himself spewing water as a fountain.

Very thin, quite transparent. Holds well
- Judi H in CA
I agree with Debbie P. This paint looks terrible on glass. Streaks, different colors. I'm attempting to paint a State Seal on stained glass to make a badge for my son and at the rate it's going it will be 2 years before it's painted good enough to use. Everything she said about the brush stroked and overlapping areas is true for me. Not a happy camper with this product.

I bought the butterfly set as a gift for my niece. She loved it! Colors are highly concentrated and water-soluble. The resist on the paper helps her stay in the lines as well as lay down a wash over a large area without losing the tiny linear details in the wings. Highly recommend!
