Terraforming is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying a planets atmosphere, temperature, surface, topography or ecology to be similar to the environment of Earth. This seemed like the perfect title to describe my new series since it relates to my painting process.
With this series I’ve started using different types of thick acrylic materials, with various textures. Using water, energy and heat to manipulate their formation, I am attempting to create organic formations, much the same way rocks and other geographic patterns are shaped over time.
As with all my work, my goal is to create a natural event on the working surface, recreating natural occurrences rather than copying them.
