Encaustic on Wood Panel
36x36

Encaustic (bees wax & damar resin), water media, ink, paper, vintage finds, gesso and oil on cradled wood panel.

From the Artist: "In this encaustic series I am exploring opposites and juxtapositions: light against dark, precise lines alongside torn edges, smooth and rough, chaos and control whether the wax is fused with a light touch from a torch or a heavy iron dragged through the wax. I often begin a piece with script in charcoal, this is mostly covered with encaustic paint and torn strips of paper that I have stained. I work in many layers, often tucking things into the wax or masking something out, sometimes repeating the entire process. It’s completely process driven, a dialogue of responses and reactions. The resulting surfaces are thick & translucent, marred & textured, riddled with secrets."
