Epoxy and abaca wave sculptures in the tradition of Art Nouevea.

Posing with The Old Man and the Sea, epoxy and abaca sculpture. 36 x 36 x 3 inches. Private collection.

I thought up the title for this sculpture The Old Man and the Sea, after reading Ernest Hemmingway’s classic novel about perseverance. Like the protagonist in Hemmingway’s novel who despite having spent years as an accomplished fisherman, hasn’t caught a fish is 86 days, I worked on the idea to combine epoxy, a substrate that can be installed in a heavy traffic area, with abaca, a natural fiber that holds the pigment beautifully, allowing the colors to swim in the liquid epoxy as it searches for its ultimate shape and form, for four + years, on top of my 35+ years as a working artist. After many failures, or “2000 ways how not to make a epoxy and abaca sculpture,” I discovered a process that works. 

Created in the tradition of art nouveau, an artistic style that celebrates the whimsical rhythms and shapes of nature, this sculpture mimics ocean waves,  full of energy, emotion, and like real waves, impossible to fully control, kind of like Hemmingway himself, and ok, kind of me too cool.  

This sculpture is in a private collection. Contact me if you are interested in discussing a wave inspired sculpture for your space.

Once I figured out how to make the sculptures on a consistant basis, I worked on developing a means for exhibiting them free-standing. This is especially important for people who live in small spaces, or who want to bring their art collection with them to their seasonal destinations.

Like The Old Man and the Sea, this sculpture is created in the tradition of art nouveau, an artistic style that celebrates the whimsical rhythmns and shapes of nature, this sculpture mimics ocean waves,  full of energy, emotion, and like real waves, impossible to fully control, kind of like Hemingway himself, and ok, kind of me toocool.

This cubicle comes with clear a plexiglass divider. Look at the stunning difference this office space by replacing the plexiglass divider with a custom resin artwork.

Slide the arrow left and right to see the before/after image. The panel on the left shows the cubicle divider with the standard plexiglass screen. On the right is my epoxy art panel installed in its place. Color and texture not only liven up our living spaces, but adding artwork encourages creativity and ingenuity in the workplace. Contact me to learn more about my Art Nouveau inspired room divider panels and sneeze screens. I’d love to help promote creativity in your office or those of your clients.

Let’s desgin a wave sculpture for your next project.
