NOTE: This is resin, not acrylic. Zatista lacks a resin section yet, so I had to put that. Resin is like a liquid glass. Also known as epoxy. Interstellar Falls was inspired by my awe for how nature often finds itself in symmetrical juxtaposition. Where the macro and the micro resemble each other. A nebula can look like an underwater scene, satellite imagery can look like microscopic imagery. I put three layers on this painting and in-person you can explore the layers visually in a 3d way that is not possible to capture on camera but is really what makes resin an exceptional medium. 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. NOTE: Acrylic is only on the base most layer of the painting that is not visible.
