“OCEANIC CALM” is a huge immersive piece that sweeps you away into its views or ebbing waves and building swells. It’s so large that your eyes can really linger in the seaside daydream. The waves pulling away from the shore and seem to actually move, there is a shadow just underneath the wave that lends an incredible realism to it. Working in layers, one over the other I was able to build a realistic transparency akin to an aerial drone image or even just standing in the water looking down. Move in close and you are swept away by the loads of details and move out and you are taken in by the expansive movement apparent in the piece.

What is Resin?

Resin is like a liquid glass. It is a two-part epoxy that once mixed, starts to harden within the hour.

I mix resin with various pigments and then work with a blowtorch and knife to paint these scenes.

Some paintings have up to 5 layers of resin, each taking 72 hours to fully cure. You can see through the layers like looking through glass or water. Once cured, it is brilliantly shiny like glass and also robustly durable like a countertop. Resin is so durable it is even used to make surfboards using similar processes as to how I create my paintings.

*Picture is an example of how my work may look in your space, but the actual size is as listed. Typically, I enlarge it in the example picture to capture all the detail. However, if you want a very large piece, request customization with the button above and I will see what I can do.
