Philippine-born artist Dan Lam creates highly textured sculptures in amorphous forms that drip, ooze, and crackle. Using color as an aspect of the surface texture, the contrasting shades present a visual vibration. Beginning with a wooden panel base, the artist uses polyurethane foam to build the shapes. She then adds acrylic paint or resin to create the surface finish.
Now based in Texas, the artist’s studio is inside her Dallas home. “I love being able to get to work whenever I need to or if an idea strikes. My studio takes up the back half of the house and everything is covered in plastic sheeting. I usually work at night, from around 8pm–4am,” said Lam in an interview.
