This is an experimental abstract resin art piece on plexiglass. When put in front of a window or other light source this piece will take on a stained glass semi-transparent aesthetic and cast prismatic color across your room. When the piece is in front of a white wall it will appear how pictured here! Ovum 15' is dazzeling in person and really a unique object.
This piece was recently involved with my last solo show where I had hung it quite easily in front of a window with a little bit of fishing line. The gallery owner would always tell me about the nice light patterns that would be projected around the gallery throughout the day as a result.
Mac Hillenbrand has recently been named one of the current '50 to Watch' San Diego artist's by the directors of the Mingei and Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego for his innovative and visually stunning paintings out of wood inlay and resin. His artistic conquest lives within the intrepid dominion of creating paintings out of wood. Since opening his doors officially for business in 2015 this guy has secretly endeavored to invent and pioneer three new artistic genres; marquetry surf art in wood inlay, turning the grain of a singular board into a painting with his ‘Waves in the Wood’ series and thirdly reinventing stained glass with ultra-prismatic resin paintings on plexiglass. Both a graduate of The American School of French Marquetry and the founder of The French Fry Factory underground ‘art-space’ he is currently pioneering the use of marquetry wood veneering techniques specifically to explore the aesthetic organic parallels between wood grain characteristics and oceanic textures. He lives, works and surfs in San Diego.
