This piece represents a departure and enhancement of my normal resin technique. Instead of pouring color resin on a flat surface, in this piece, I created a custom corrugated piece of plastic wrap and applied multiple colors of resin atop it. This creates a 3D surface with multiple layers, and a Gem-like effect.

Biography I have lived and worked abroad for the last 10 years, mostly in Russia, but also some in Morocco. I just moved back to the states to live with my two teenage boys. During the last years in Moscow, I began painting and now paint full time. I’m a stay-at-home dad, and work out of my home studio. I try to do yoga and meditate regularly. The kids and I spend our vacations either kiteboarding or skiing. I was born in Columbia, MO in 1970. I have a BA in Russian Literature from Amherst College and an MBA from the University of Chicago. I’ve worked for the last 20 years as a mortgage bond trader (Bank of America) and management consultant (BCG, McKinsey.) My last job was Partner and Head of Strategy Consulting in Russia at KPMG. Joshua's work was recently featured at the Fountain Fair, hosted by Mana Contemporary in Chicago.
