I am fascinated with the possibilities of using encaustic wax in my collages. I use fragrant, unrefined beeswax as my medium. It is a very sensuous and infinitely malleable medium. I love the emotional tonalities it gives, the way it diffuses light, the way it provides my little stories the simultaneous feeling of old age and timeless child-like fantasy.
The constant flux of heating and solidifying starts a dance-like interaction between artist and medium. The process of applying, scraping down and digging back
to elements of another time (even if it was just moments ago or a few layers beneath a translucent surface) is much like an adults memory of being a child, of gathering what is precious and distilling it into memory.
My hope is that you are able to find a daydream in each Quiet Lark.
thanks for visiting and i hope you enjoy what you see!
