Modern Coast 1 and 2 (two in the series) were inspired by my fascination with both the sea and modern minimalism. I live in a coastal area and I am surrounded by water. It inspires me everyday, yet at the same time, I am driven by modernism in my work, so I love the juxtaposition of the two. I wanted these pieces to have an ocean/coastal inspired feel through color, yet remain very minimalist and modern in terms of composition and the gloss coat finish. This piece is composed of MDF and acrylic, then finished with an epoxy resin topcoat. Epoxy resin is very glossy and almost appears to be glass, but is much more durable. It adds to the very contemporary upscale feel of the piece. The edges are painted and finished and it is wired to hang.
