These Seafoam sculptural drawings works are based on my childhood memory of summer retreats with my Dad's family on the Jersey Shore and winter vacations with my Grandparents to the California Coastline, Hawaii , The Caribbean Islands and other world ports.
About The Images
These drawings are comprised of hundreds of thousands of pinpoint oil ink polkadots I draw on both sides of a sheet of plexiglas. I then paint resin inside the drawn areas and add textures which capture and project patterns of light and shadow onto the color panel behind the drawing. These pieces interact with their environment and change according to the source and strength of light and where the viewer stands. They are dimensional. They are drawings but they are also wall sculptures. All of these works are clear, frosted and white. The color is another layer behind the works. Each image is drawn from memory. They are NOT traced or printed or photocopied. Each is an exercise in decision making for every single dot of ink and brush load of resin.
