I have been developing this cracking technique in my paintings and as I started to work on areas of the crackle, they emerged as giant stones in my mind. Perhaps Stonehenge or the solid columns of Scottish goliath stones came to my mind. I surrounded my stones with paths and a sun or orb of sorts and the cool mossy greens of the seas or fields. I tried various orientations of the piece and though this is photographed in this direction, I believe it could be hung in other directions as well.

Getting to Know Lisa

Lisa Bick is a Santa Fe-based artist who creates abstract encaustic and wax-based paintings that express the intricacies of a lifetime. She views her work with wax as a metaphor for life; the layers symbolize a person’s life experiences and the blowtorch, used to fuse the layers together, symbolizes loss, desire and longing. Her work, like life, is complex and comprises seemingly incompatible opposites such as order and disorder and the rare and the ordinary. Lisa’s overarching goal with her work is to connect the individual spirit with the larger world.
