I got a nice tipoff from a friend about the extremely beautiful and mesmerizing resin work of Charine Barber.`There was a recent art show in Sooke and this talented Canadian artists work really stuck out from the rest of the art on display according to him, and I am glad he let me know because this is right up my alley.
As we’re always on the hunt to showcase great Canadian artists, we’re happy to highlight the very unique work of Charine Barber. Learning about her history, she started out paining back in 2011 learning the craft mostly on her own. We’ll take a look at how she got into this resin work within the past couple of years, and highlight some of my favorite pieces of hers below.
In 2018, Charine started taking a new direction with her art when she discovered resin work, and noticed a geode inspired art movement starting to take off. I’ve got to say I’m quite impressed because in just a short timespan, she has managed to produce some very beautiful pieces that look like were done by someone doing this for decades.
Charine’s art is created carefully on treated birch canvases, as well they can be on freeform cut boards. She builds layers from fire-glass, acrylic beads, gravel as well as sand to get those rich textures. This is how she is able to create the appearance of the crystal rock formations found in nature.
