This is a rather unique multi-layer resin painting on top of wood. There's just something about trees in outer space that I find compelling if not cinematic and I hope you do to. I really love the darker complexion of the Cyprus against this colorful space-scape on this original piece. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
The colors, which are primary color wood tinting dyes, are crystalized into position in self leveling bar top epoxy resin sitting atop the Baltic Birch plywood. The resin utilized is crystal clear ultra uv resistant 'art resin' self leveling epoxy specifically designed to ensure the preservation and protection of both the woodwork and the integrity of these beautiful colors! This high gloss finish also makes it washable. The piece comes with it's own "French Cleat" for quick, easy and super secure hanging and requires no framing. The backside has two coats of varnish so that all sides of this piece are sealed. Enjoy!
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.
