I enjoy the spiral build up of creating a rose and I was interested in the connectivity between luxury and nature. So much of this series was inspired by car paint: the sheen, the sleekness, and luxe finish that creates almost a mirror effect. I wanted to see If I could mimic that texture - that sparkle - in my own resin experiments. The materials I landed on lasted and took the paint and resin the best. I used MDF instead of wood to paint on because there’s no grain to indent, and used metal flakes to create the sparkle and multiple layers of resin.Brooklyn, NY
