Artist's Description

Waters Divided – “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.” — Exodus 14:21
Made in 2018.

This is a print of original art I created using fluid art techniques. It begins with liquid acrylic paint poured over coated paper. I move the paint without the touch of a brush. When I tilt the surface, gravity is my paintbrush. When I blow on the paint, my breath pushes it. I drag the paint with sticks and pallette knives, with strings and chains, with paper and card. I part the rivulets with combs. I squish surfaces together and pull them apart. There are many different techniques I use, but even when I use the same techniques with the same colours, each painting is different. Then the dried painting is captured, either by camera or by scanner, to give the highest resolution possible for the print.
