Description of the Artwork “The Water Rose”

24 in X 20 in X 1.5in Poplar / Birch Wood Panel lacquered sides Ready to Hang Comes with a Signed Certificate of Authenticity "The Water Rose" features layers of lapping ocean waves that are so pretty and realistic you can almost feel your toes getting wet in the sand. I wanted to capture that feeling of looking down at the waves and seeing the rippled sand beneath them while watching the white seafoam spray across the beach. 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. *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.

I'm eternally in awe of not just the beauty that exists in nature but the laws that govern that beauty. The same laws that captivate us with a sprawling sunset (something quite large, also beguile us with the magnificence of a nebula (something mind-boggling huge) or with the inner structure of the cells in a leaf (something quite small). There is a beauty that belies itself as chaos all around us. I work in resin for this very reason. As I pour and manipulate the thick liquid resin, for a moment in time I experience, like a fleeting sunset, the beauty that the laws of physics creates on the canvas, just before it disappears and reinvents itself, settling on the final outcome of the painting. As a former surfer, this reminds me of lying on the board in the water and catching a glimpse of a never to be replicated moment where a small wave peaks and crests and water foams about only to disappear. I want to capture moments tied in their core to nature on a canvas. Resin lets me freeze those moments in time.
