Statement

Encaustic painting is one of the oldest known painting techniques dating back to over 2000 years. This was the medium artists used before oil or tempera were invented. The ancient Greeks colored their battle ships, statues and buildings with encaustic. From the Roman Egyptian period, the Fayum tomb portraits dating from 100 A. D. remain bright, un-aged, and without cracks testifying to the durability of this medium. Encaustic was used on the wall murals in Pompeii and remained popular throughout the 6th and 7th centuries. It was replaced by tempera and fresco due to the intensity of time, labour and the heat involved with the technique and was virtually lost by the middle ages.
As a painter I am continuing a historical tradition of exploring the boundaries between the natural and the artificial. My work references nature and the abstractions found in nature. My recent work is concerned with a ritual of silence and simplicity, exploring the spaces between structure and fluidity, light and density. My working methods have developed to include numerous layers of translucent applications of pigmented wax. This effect of diffused light produces an atmosphere of nature in the work, which remains minimalist and abstract.

SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
