Resin is a relatively modern art medium. It came to popularity in the mid-1960s when a number of artists began to consider the aesthetic possibilities of using polyester resin for their work. With its somewhat otherworldly, abstract appearance, resin offers a fascinating reflection of the strange environment around us and is often used to depict the natural landscape.
Many artists and viewers fall in love with resin based on the organic process of creation, its fluidity and its ability to emphasise colours to a high, almost three-dimensional intensity. It is also adaptable so can be used in combination with various other mediums.
