Each piece is started with a meditation and surrender to what the piece wants to become. As Michaelangelo said "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."
The organic canvas is then created for each piece. Paints are handcrafted using natural materials and Windmill created paints from the Nederlands, De Kat Windmill. Gemstones, Micas, Metals, Diamond Dusts, hand-blown glass, Swarovski crystals, Flowers, French stained glass, and other materials are chosen for the piece. The organic Indonesian tree resin is then processed. The piece starts to come together layer by layer. Each piece ranges from three layers up to fifteen layers deep; giving the paintings a stunning three dimensional quality upon completion. During his creation process Lundy uses a high heat to melt and manipulate mediums used in the painting. Each layer is then sealed in the organic Indonesian tree resin. Some pieces include trees sculpted over the top of finished backgrounds with multiple layers of acrylic, oil, and hand mixed paints. It is a lengthy process, ranging from several weeks to over a year. Every painting holds carries its own story.
Desiring to evolve his artistic technique to new levels, Lundy began experimenting with the manipulation of resin off of the canvas. The results of his experimentation led to the creation of the Dimensions series. Individually colored pieces of Indonesian tree resin are pulled and stretched into the shape Lundy desires using high heat. This delicate process is akin to the work of a glassblower. Once shaped, the three dimensional pieces are then painted and fused within the final layers of the painting resulting in stunning pieces which actually jump off of the canvas toward the viewer. Lundy's modern avant garde techniques are unmatched and truly revolutionary in the world of art.
