Sky Meets the Land is a series about imagining our beautiful land. The feelings you get when driving across the country, or walking in the fields. How the wind blows against your face or the sun shines down, creating beautiful, bright colours. I have tried to capture some of these feelings in this series of abstract and representative pieces. I wish to invite the viewer to imagine or reflect on their experiences and what imagery or memory this might evoke.Artist Statement
I worked with fibre for many years, but found it was taking a toll on my body. I was looking for a new creative outlet and for fun tried a workshop using encaustics. I was hooked!! I never saw myself as a painter, but have discovered a real love using encaustics to capture and share my imaginative creations. Encaustics is an ancient medium combining bees wax and damar resin, and by combining it with dry pigments or oil paints, I create my colour palate. I utilize a heat gun or torch to adhere the wax to the surface. Working intuitively, often using a photo for inspiration, I allow the painting to direct me. After building the surface with encaustic medium I often apply shellac to create texture and luminosity. Strong, bold colours bring me great joy, and I hope my paintings translate that joy to the viewer.
