Title: Broken Water
Size: approximately 120cm x 60cm
Description: Broken water depicts the connection of humans to nature’s bodies of water. The water has been polluted, but its dynamic beauty is resilient. The water still flows, although broken. It is sharp to protect itself from further damage, but remains strongly integrated as its alluring surfaces continues to protect what is below.
Technique: acrylic and powder pigmented epoxy resin was initially poured on a surface using a marble pattern replicating waves. The epoxy was then broken up into pieces and carved and bent before it was completely set to give it a curve. Then the pieces were arranged and fixated in a black pigmented epoxy resin layer on a wooden plank. In the form of a misshapen puzzle that seemingly fits.
