If you follow my instagram you will immediately see my new ventures into clear resin. I’m using casting resin vs. the typical resin that you see on tables and paintings to coat and protect and add a brilliant layer of shine. I’ve been slowly yet surely dreaming of painting and adding sculptures within sculptures and was beyond excited to discover Riusuke Fukahori‘s three-dimensional goldfish embedded in resin. He carefully paints each layer in between resin to create the effect; the result is so realistic and beautiful.

Los Angeles painter Pia Habekost is after my own heart with her abstract typographic explorations. These large pieces (all around 96″ x 64″) have dozens of layers of paint and stenciling that create beautiful complex textures. Each piece tends to stay in a single color and narrative theme, ranging from “personal experience to current events”. Check out more of her work here and her inspiring tumblr that I actually very often refer to for my own inspiration.
