This piece triggers so many memories depending on how I look at it. This progress photo shows the many layers of translucent and phosphorescent casts. Each layer is a world on its own. Elements float throughout the piece. Air-Water-Earth and Light. I look down and experience hovering over an ancient land with mysterious lights along a desolate coastline and when venturing in for a close up view, I experience an underwater world.
Some of the first resin layers and casts of this piece. I always start with a clear cast and in this photo I see color meaning its a later cast of the work. Layer 2 or 3
Several new casts. 11-20
David Paul" The earth's innate wisdom always seeks balance. When its molten interior rises forth to claim more surface, the seas cool the flow, so one does not overtake the other fully. Land and sea have replaced each other many times over, yet both maintain their place in an ever moving dance that has spanned all time. For me, this piece evokes that eternal ebb and flow, and make me mindful that a journey, no matter how short or long, is an endless series of changes both subtle and profound, that ultimately can result is something greater and more beautiful than what came before. Your work Larry is a gift that we can find great inspiration in!"
Shaped and sanded the 48" mesquite slab. Continuing to "fill" the voids with layers of translucent resins. All the resin layers in the front of the piece has added significant weight to the piece. I keep thinking this piece would make a beautiful hostess stand for a restaurant. I work with light, whether determining the clear translucent layers or the phosphorescent resin casts which emits strong light when charged with light. The light emitted from the phosphorescent powders can be seen all night, starting brilliantly then a subdued light for several hours.
