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.
