Come check out the resin art of local artist, Mandy Masters.
Kearney, Missouri based and KHS Class of 99’ Alum resin artist Mandy Masters has been exhibiting work since 1997. She was sponsored by Mercy Seat 00’-03’ at the downtown Kansas City “First Fridays” and an active member at the Liberty Arts Foundation “Sidewalk Chalk Show” from 01’-04’. Following High School, she studied Graphic Design at Maple Woods and UMKC. Discovering her passion for painting and creative expression later in life is not the disadvantage one might assume. For what she lacks in professional training is overshadowed by her work ethic and confident self-awareness achieved only through life experience.
Masters large abstract paintings have been described as bold and explosive, with a dramatic color palette that can be both invigorating and soothing at the same time. Her expressionist paintings reflect her personality through musical inspiration, fascination of the elements in nature, and respect for her Spirituality.
Working predominately with epoxy resin, her fearless approach is unorthodox, rarely using an easel or a brush. The art itself then begins to take on its own path, flows freely, her journey of exploration drives her to constantly refine and improve her original epoxy resin painting technique.
Masters turns to painting, a process that she finds absolutely freeing, as both an emotional release and a self-healing ritual, to achieve balance and beauty within herself and on her canvas.
