“Exploration” was inspired by watching the incredible images coming in from the Juno probe over Jupiter as well as that coming in from Enceladus. They are simply wonderful and capture the imagination of worlds we’ve only glimpsed at. I used a resin layering technique to achieve a real sense of depth as you peer through the clouds, just like Juno! What I love the most about this piece is the intense glimmers of copper that come through when the light hits it in different ways.

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 nature.
