"Opus 13" an original resin on panel painting by American artist Ken Sloan. These paintings are "self-framed" in other words, Ken has given them a fine finished wood edge which completes the piece and does not require any further framing. His wonderful stylized "chop mark" signature is also positioned on the side. In Ken's own words : "The actual process begins with transparent, semi-transparent and opaque epoxy resin. Both liquid and powdered pigments are used in the medium. When I pour the resin it looks like liquid. When it dries, it still looks like liquid. Each color layer is allowed to fully cure before the next is applied. The layers form a heavily textured puzzle-like appearance. The viscosity of the medium can be manipulated with heat and the timing of the pour. I think of the finished pieces as fluid, liquid sculptures. The glassy transparent and semi-transparent layers allow the viewer to see the evolution of the piece. Perhaps that is what defines my work, this sense that the history of the process is revealed in the final painting. I believe the word pentimento applies. I look at a finished piece and can see its roots, its evolution."
