The Creative Process for this Work by Melbourne Resin Artist Jessica Skye Baker
Created with vibrant orange, golds, and smashes of red, ‘Walk of Fire’ took months for Melbourne resin artist Jessica Skye Baker to complete, using her signature mediums.
The foundation of the piece is a mixture of orange acrylic paints that have been layered lavishly on a large scale (1 metre x 2 metres stretched canvas). The artist then applied multiple pours of resin to the piece over time.
In between the layers of resin, dyes and pigments have been strategically placed onto the entire surface with extreme finesse, yet confident, execution. In a grand final gesture, a delicate metallic gold pigment has been thrown into the wet resin.
Artist Jessica Skye Baker is best known for her confident use of multiple techniques to create unique colour blends. Her mixed medium paintings are one-of-a-kind, utterly exclusive, and impossible to duplicate. She paints with passion and flair: a fact very much in evidence from viewing her body of work.
