Brazen Heights

“Brazen Heights”

Resin is a demanding but exhilarating art form. It is punishing but blissful. With just an hour of worktime, I must use every hard wrought lesson to perfect the pigmented resin I pour. I use surfboard crafting pigments, India Inks, powder pigments and more for the varying hues. Then, I grab a heat-based tool, like my blow torch and manipulate the poured layers from there. The same process that gets you a gorgeously decorated surfboard is what gets you these paintings. As a former surfer, I find myself ever eager to recapture those fleeting moments in the surf in resin.

“Brazen Heights” was an exploration in negative white space use and also an homage to the cliff faces of the Utah desert that I recently transversed. Seeing the rigid harsh lines that time created in the rock against the vast open space of the sky inspired me to make a piece that captures that juxtaposition. I wanted a piece that captured both the epic openness of the space but also the warmth and strength of the cliffs.
