Artist Statement for “Encaustic Painting”.
My encaustic paintings are a direct outgrowth from this experience in monotype. I use encaustic wax not as an adhesive but an integral element, giving it a layered and emotional quality. Incorporating various printed images, marks and objects, scraping, incising, re-painting, and layering the various colors the wax is always an adventurous process.
The wax medium holds a visceral quality and provides me with an adventurous journey though the artistic process.
