Paper Casting
Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me to use almost every skill set. A typical piece begins as a drawing or two. Then I sculpt it in wax. This is a long refining process and often the image sculpted is far different from the drawing. Then I build a dam around the wax and pour a rubber mold directly off the surface. A casting is made by pressing the wet cotton pulp into the mold and extracting the water. Then I finish the surface.
While every piece that emerges from the mold is about the same, no two are really painted the same. Maybe I would if I could, but the painting process is always in flux. I am always experimenting with ways of mixing colors or washes and hard edge or new pigments. I send about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.

I missed going to the Dublin Irish Festival this year - like all larger crowd events, it was cancelled. I had looked forward to buying some more art from Kevin Dyer again as I found him here several years ago. Then, I received a link from the festival saying I could order online and behold, Mr. Dyer had a store with Etsy - who knew? Me now. I ordered 3 more pieces of art to add to the 3 I already had. Kevin's art has dimension to it. He makes these art pieces and then paints each one by hand is what he explained to me when I talked to him one year. (he also has prints on his website, but I prefer the cast art). This art just appeals to me - I like the designs - both the subject and his take on it. Plus the actual paint work is great. They are really look at me pieces of art. I will be back to buy more in the future.
