Encaustic wax on wood form.
Approximate size: 10x10x5cm
Original one-off piece.
This piece is part of my 'Blockpainting' series.
The intention with this series of semi-sculptural paintings was to use proportions that make pieces project from the wall, but with a scale that keeps the interaction intimate and unintimidating.
Working with encaustic creates an interesting challenge of balancing precision and chaos as the hot wax often has a mind of its own and can be difficult to control. This series was an exercise in allowing uncertainty to enter, and trying not to control every detail of the work.
Signed on back.
Ready to hang.
