My medium is encaustic wax, oil, pigments and found objects, both man-made and of nature. I begin with a primal thought of color and shape. Each piece I create evolves through time and layers of texture building until it reveals how it wants to grow and what it wants to be. Working with wax lends itself to a highly physical interaction of process. Through heating, melting, and carving, all while seeding color. Then layering and building, only to deconstruct and tear back down. Revealing each layer and fusion as the whole. I will lead you in a meditation of our future, past and our current state of being.
