Abstract Landscapes

These abstract landscape paintings begin with a mixed media underpainting before wax is added. This process encourages a playful expressive approach to painting. In this latest series, I explore the way I view the world through abstract shapes, textures and colours. Although these imagined landscapes convey a sense of place, I’m not attempting to depict a real or specific place.

This series of paintings rely on an underlying history beneath the surface of the wax to arrive at the finished work. I begin with collage and expressive marks—pasted pages from old books, torn maps, paint, pencil and ink—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.
