Fleeting moments series.

This series for works from Tim Hudson features the use of clear resin.  The layers of colour are built up to create a depth which trancends beyond the mere surface of the painting.  Trapping each layer of colour in a layer of resin gives a much greater deffinition to the actual space that each layer occupies, each one casting shadow onto the layer beneath. The effect is reminiscent of an ancient insect trapped in amber.  However long anything we do takes, it is all but fleeting moments in the grand scale of time.

The sides of these works are angled at 45 degrees to the wall, and painted with a fluorescent pigment. The reflected hue of the colour is cast onto the wall behind the work and results in the work seeming to occupy more space than it’s physical boundaries.
