Float On Art Galleryfeaturing artists that float
Currently Featured Artist
The body of work I have created in response to my first float experience explores the process of letting go of habitual anxiety in an effort to find a clear mindspace. My initial floatation expectation versus the actual float experience informed the making of the art, which can be represented by contrasting human symbols and consciousness.
Through various mediums including acrylic, graphite, and risograph printing, my work processes semiotic themes and reductive forms to create a universal visual language. My attempt to keep the work loose and informal is a result of the fleeting nature of my thought process while in the float tank. As my mind tried to process the thought, another idea soon replaced it. As my floatation experiences further, I hope to find ways to reduce anxiety and a cluttered mindspace, using art as a tool to process and explore.

Anything that can be hung vertically by our wire/hook track system. Please do not include any fresh/wet oil pieces.

We only charge a 5% commission!! This basically just covers credit processing charges.
What about the original piece?
Along with the process of being a gallery exhibitor, you will be given 4 float sessions in exchange for one original float inspired piece after completing your float sessions. It will also be hung in the gallery for the duration of the month. After your month is over the original, float inspired piece will belong to Float On to be appreciated for ages to come.
