Textual Landscape Series

When we read, we discover new worlds. Words on the page combine with the reader’s imagination to paint a picture that is unique for each individual. Colours, lines, shapes, and textures form into landscapes in our minds. This series of text-based paintings rely on an underlying history beneath the surface of the wax to arrive at the finished work. I begin with an underpainting—pasted pages from old books, torn maps, paint, pencil and ink marks on the panel. I then apply encaustic medium and continue to work in layers—obscuring, building up, and revealing, scraping away. The stories the paintings tell will be different for each viewer.
