Contemporary Encaustic
Abstract.  Mindful.  Ancient technique.

I use beeswax and fire to create primarily black and white abstract contemporary paintings using an ancient technique most known for its vibrant colors. The work has a heavy sculptural aspect and features uneven surfaces, cuts, cracks and chips; and often incorporates recycled material. It is an exploration into the organic and raw nature of encaustic, a medium that begs to be layered, heated, carved, scraped and scratched and dictates both an additive and reductive creative process in an effort to expose itself in all of its forms.

Influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Arte Povera, the work is neutral in palette, architectural in style and organic in process and texture.

Specifically, the abstract 7/7's are smaller encaustic works that invite the viewer to arrange and rearrange, resulting in a custom, one-of-a-kind wall installation, each a unique reflection of the viewer’s own aesthetic.
