Imperfect Flow Paint Carving

  • An ode to imperfection, this piece is carved into 55 layers of acrylic paint on a wooden board. While carving this piece, I explored my struggle with perfectionism acutely and it serves to accept that there is no such thing as Perfect and the world is all the more beautiful for our imperfections. 


    Paint carvings are created by painting layers of acrylic paint onto a surface and then carving paint away to reveal a design. Layering paint for a single piece is a process that takes several weeks to layer and even more to carve. It is a labor of love and peace and renders designs with a beautiful and unique texture.
