Mardi Gras Party is a masterful example of the artist's intuitive and revered abilities as a resin designer. My work on canvas is typical of the urgency of the mark-making, the variance of media and color, and the composition's freneticism. It is exceptional for the vivid gold colors that contrast against the depth of its red gold background; the composition's completeness using the dynamic phi rectangle armature covers almost every inch of the canvas. In this work, I show the addition of gems and crystals to resin. I also added gold and acrylic paints to the resin to create the red, violet and gold of the Mardi Gras Party in New Orleans on Fat Tuesday.
