WHAT LIES BENEATH THE SURFACE SERIES
The inspiration behind this work was to depict the complexity of the human species. Things are never what they appear to be on the surface, but it’s the layers of character and realities that unveil themselves with truth, vulnerability, patience and time.
The inspiration for these works is the euphoric feeling one can achieve by remaining committed to constant growth and reaching for the highest places.
This series is inspired by the steady consciousness and realization of the realities of transience. It is a ground for wisdom and freedom and the protector of compassion and love.
Working in wax is a sensual experience. The medium allows me to work in a very fluid way, working in both an additive and subtractive manner, creating many layers of transparency and texture. Working in encaustic, the hot beeswax has a beautiful aroma and grounding element.
