I made “Seafoam Rush” to capture the two sides of a breaking wave from an aerial perspective, One side is rushing forward with smooth straight lines in orderly formation, rushing to break and peel into the other side of frenetic explosive seafoam webbing. With several layers sitting one on top of the other, you can see shadows cast by foaming lines and cellular webs in the ocean spray for a realistic window into seaside vantages that you can really get lost in. At 2ft by 4ft, the aqua colors are what first really take you in. It’s bright and teeming with movement. And as you move closer inspecting the details, that vibrance becomes even more alive as your eye picks up on the subtle variance in whites and blues and the shifting tones of the layers that sit on top of each other, much like being at eye level with the sea for just a fleeting moment before it continues its dance of forever changing.
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.
