Piece description from the artist
Heavenly bodies is an abstract artist's eye view from another planet, with some visual comments on how other planets look from this one convoluted in there.
The construction of the painting is a set of playful experiments in the viscoelastic properties of acrylic gel and liquid media. These media dry transparent and can be tinted with transparent paint colors, rendered translucent with opaque and semi-opaque colors, swirled, extruded, and poured over one another in various stages of drying. A wide range of layered and intertwined transparent patterns can be generated, with an incredible depth of color.
In Heavenly Bodies, gel medium was extruded through fine round and a multi hole nozzles using a pastry bag. The medium was lightly tinted. When extruded it forms shining light manipulating ribbons and nests of "acrylic vermicelli", which can be obscured by a tinted clear film layer or piled up to create crazy clear gelid textures on the canvas.
