Originally intended as a means for breeding rust as a pigment for paintings and drawings, Arizona artist Jerry Jacobson's newest body of work features glass jars filled with metal objects, glass, salt and water. Over time as these "rust farms" formed, the vessels themselves became objects of further interest and purpose. From the contents, Jacobson creates drawings and then refills the jars, commencing a new composition of decay. The Rust Farms project reflects Jacobson's continued interest in subjects like recycling, automatic drawing, alchemy, science and natural and unnatural processes.
