These are works on paper, drawn with sticks dipped in ink, then overlaid with plastic containers, fiberglass and bio-resin (a special non-toxic formula made from pine sap). The imbedded plastic makes them 3-dimensional and the resin makes them impervious to light and moisture. All works are a square format, either 49 x 49 inches or 23.5 x 23.5 inches.
Smaller drawings are embedded in these materials, forming distorted views of trees, alien rock formations, double stars, etc. Also suggested are exoplanets as they might appear if we could actually see them through telescopes. The structures of outposts, landers and piers float in the seductive bio-resin color fields, suggesting strange atmospheres.
This new work references early art movements such as Finish Fetish from the 1960’s, process experimentation from the 1970’s, Moderism and retro Sci-Fi.
