I've been experimenting a lot with resin and glossy surfaces. I love how using the resin allows for layers to build up and delicate strokes to be contained within the painting. I like that a painting could contain small details within it's self with these layers.
Have you ever tried to get close to paintings in the museum. Usually the docents don't tolerate your face coming closer than 5 ft from a paintings surface. But if get a chance to get close to the surface to notice how an artist's gesture is remembered forever in those strokes of color and line and then step backward to take in the whole piece...the viewer can seem enjoy a silent dance with an art piece. A dance in looking and noticing what is quiet and subtle.
These layered paintings give me a sense of that joy in making a piece I can have a dance with.
