Carol Kaminski


Artists Statement:

Resin art is a contemporary medium where pigments are mixed into resin, then poured and manipulated onto a substrate (in my case, wooden panels). I am one of the few artists in the US who paint with it, particularly in a realistic form.

I’ve been an artist, in many different forms, all of my life. I’ve worked in pastels, gouache and acrylics; I’ve been a singer and actress. For the past eight to ten years I’ve been painting in oils. My preferred style is realism; my feeling is that my paintings aren’t successful unless they look like a photograph. But painting like that, although beautiful to me, can be a long and tedious process. I was looking for a new style that would help me finish pieces quicker than I could with oils.

I found resin art during a visit to Roanoke, VA. I noticed a piece in the window of a gallery that I was mesmerized by. I found that the artist finished his piece with resin to help add depth to the work. I loved the finished look, but that still meant I had to do the painting first, which didn’t help speed up the process. Resin is used to fix boats and to finish floors, bar tops and surfboards, so I thought “if they could add color to those projects, why couldn’t I do the same thing?”.

The only tools I use are toothpicks and popsicle sticks - no brushes. And since the resin starts to cure in about 45 minutes, you have to paint quickly. Resin has a mind of its own - sometimes the resin is done and I’m not!
