Genesis

Debbie Bredemus's avatar Debbie Bredemus

The Genesis Series is a statement of 5 paintings that will hang 48x102x2.25" Each part has it's own subtitle (see pictures) in Creation. Using a newer medium, epoxy resin, I was motivated to take it to a new level. I found that epoxy really gives an art surface vibrancy, life and permanence... the perfect medium to paint the creation of the world! Epoxy is incredibly challenging to work with, a medium that it has a mind of its own. The heat gun was my paintbrush and I was determined to master it. I loved every creative minute of this fun... until I had a severe allergic reaction to the uncured resin. I finished my project wearing a hazmat suit. I tried to breathe new life into a story that is the oldest ever told. Each piece represents a verse in Chapter 1. It is meant to show the greatness and beauty in God's creation of the world. The red ribbon connecting the pieces represents the thread of life, always present. I believe the challenges I faced made the outcome worthwhile.
