Installation Details

Jayme loves the way light reflects off objects, creating illusions, tricking the eye and capturing attention. The expansive windows at Gallery Glendale, made of glass trimmed with steel, inspired the use of steel shavings – silver and shiny, reflecting light.  The outdoor mall setting is ideal for creating human figures in motion as that is what the center promotes – people coming , going, moving. As sunlight fades, interesting shadows of the figures are cast across the stark white walls of the gallery, capturing the attention of people walking by. Jayme’s goal is to expose the public to art in a relatable way; people relate to people.

Jayme on her artistic style …

“Someone asked me once, “What does your work SAY?”  I thought about it for a moment then confidently replied, ” It doesn’t speak , it FEELS”.   What goes into my process are my feelings, thoughts, emotions, all the things in life that words can’t describe.  Does it resonate with the viewer? Sometimes. I’d like to think so. Human connection is powerful and unique to the individual.  If someone feels drawn to art then words are irrelevant and nothing needs to be said.”

This artwork was commissioned by City of Glendale Public Art
