artist statement

When two things come together, a third thing happens.  Something new emerges and comes into existence. It becomes greater than the two things.

I find an energy in the alchemy of encaustic.  Layering of beeswax, tree resin, pigment, fused with fire.  The work has a physicality in making. I am in love with the labor intensive, heavy, organic, unpredictable and predictable qualities.

Layering. Concealing, then revealing. Marks become gestures; shadows become remembrances. A shadow or gesture recedes from the surface yet is still present, becoming an underpinning of new elements that ride above it. Present, these marks support the elements like a soaring musical line help up and enriched by the textures of harmonies beneath. There is consonance and dissonance. Rough and smooth. Homophonic and polyphonic. Clear and obscured. When combined, they become that greater thing.
