RESIN PUSHING METAL

2006 - 2009

RESIN AND METAL

ARTIST STATEMENT

In this series of works I am interested in exploring the relationship between the physical properties of resin and metal. I am interested in the plasticity of metal as it responds to the resin visually is in direct contrast to the actual properties of the materials. The rigidity of the metal also forces the resin to form around, bulging through and sometimes spilling over the forms to emphasis the contrasting materials. The push and pull of materials continues to interest me and push the properties of both materials to their limits.
