Nature of Reaction

Patrick at the TN Arts and Crafts Fair at Centennial Park in Nashville, art, artisan, traveling artist

Patrick Ironwood

A mixed media visionary artist and creator of
Nature of Reaction: Fine & Unusual Art, Patrick studies and
explores imaginary shipwrecks and philosophical archeological
digs, then presents whimsical artifacts and mechanisms
discovered therein as an exhibit, known as:

The Museum of Future Anthropology.

Relicts found in this exhibit are items from current civilization reassembled by future ancestors into imaginative machines, numinous treasures, experimental optical devices, and post-civilization tribal regalia & talismans. These anachronistic
objects tell stories of many possible futures.

Lampwork, sculpture, and chemical aging of: glass, metal,
mirrors, magnets, and obtuse objects are blended into
impossibly old conundrums you hold in your hand.

This body of work includes: kaleidoscopes, divining
pendulums, apothecary bottles, wands, miniature brooms, medical amulets, phosphorescent luminaries, cabinet
knobs, lamp pulls, buttons, beads, marbles,
medicine bags, and gorgets.
