I have created this painting on a cradled wood panel with oil, pigment and cold wax medium.  From my Off the Wall series, I am inspired by the textures on old walls which contain graffiti-like marks and scratches with mysterious undertones of history beneath the surface. With Off the Wall V, I have carved into the surface in convoluted lines and channels revealing the rich colors beneath.

Getting to Know Sandi

Sandi is a mixed media abstract artist working primarily in hot wax, known as encaustic. “Encaustic paintings are equipment intense with torches, heat guns, griddles and pots, and other heating equipment like crockpots and irons,” Sandi says. The result is highly textural artworks with dimensional patterns and shapes created in the wax. The relief quality of the artwork’s surface reveals multiple layers of color, creating a dynamic depth not seen in traditional painting techniques.
