Suspending Ephemera and Paint In Resin

As I continue to Part With Words, I become enthusiastic about  embedding the bits into layers of resin.  I have a vision for what I want to do and I’m piecing together various bits of information from crafters and artists the world over.  As I painstakingly cut the pages into squares, I consider what materials I might need to use for a mold.  I wonder if the ink of my writing-pen will bleed once saturated with resin.  I ponder how I will suspend the sections of my piece or how will I display them.  All sorts of questions come to mind.  In my meanderings I have discovered two artists who have absolutely blown me away by their meticulous and in so many ways, technical works; one is Riusuke Fukahori and the other is Dustin Yellin.

First, I hope my readers will view the process exhibited in this Vimeo film of Fukahori.  Initially, I believed the goldfish to be real.  Take a look.

Demonstrating techniques using resin and also sheet glass, Dustin Yellin’s work is ‘fantastical’, given the change in the image, with the change of point of view and perception.  I have borrowed the image from the Samuel Freeman Art Gallery and hope that my readers will look at additional works.

Here in Canada, I am equally as intrigued by the artwork produced by Calgary locals, Dave & Jenn.
