Epoxy Resin Abstract Art

Casey Carriere

CURRENT
   
DRIFT
 

Casey was born and raised in beautiful Northern Ontario and currently resides in the charming village of Elora. She has been creating art and thinking outside the box for most of her life, but in 2015, to better process the heartbreak of her work with women experiencing homelessness and addictions, Casey chose to pursue art more seriously as a means of self-reflection and growth. Embracing the flow of her art, has allowed Casey to connect, accept and heal. Casey uses epoxy resin tinted with acrylics, oils, inks and pigments to create her work. Many of her pieces contain over four layers of tinted resin and take upwards of two weeks to complete. Her art is unique, vibrant and reveals a wonderful complexity and depth.

"The flow of my artwork helps me better embrace the flow of my life. I'm never quite sure how a piece will end up. The paint is controllable only to a point and even when I love how things are progressing, the details may just drift right off the side during the drying process. So, I start again. Mixing, layering, dripping and dribbling. The ebb and flow of the art further refined and made beautiful with flame. Fire is my paintbrush and reminds me often that the fires I'm dealing with in life, are the ones that most refine and beautify me."

Abstract Paintings of

Amelia Kramer

   

Amelia is an abstract artist inspired by organic shapes and harmonious colours. Encaustic wax gives her the ability to build layers of colour and scrape back to reveal the random patterns present in the intuitive gestures of the paintbrush. In some cases, she may add a final tinted transparent layer revealing hints of the colours beneath. She plays with opacity and transparency in acrylic as well. It allows her to build up layers in compositions based on abstracted landscapes. While painting she comes in and out of focus on the music she’s listening to, then the physical act of painting itself, then the music, then the painting and this back-and-forth dance continues. Music is integral to her process. Her paintings become soulless if there is no music. Generally, she names her paintings after parts of song lyrics that evoke the emotion felt when caught in the middle of laying down stoke after stroke of the brush or brayer.
