This work has a lot of depth and layers to it due to the encaustic and my application techniques.
My grounded series uses pages from old psychology books, mainly those of Carl Jung, James Hillman and Fritz Perls. Using collage, encaustic (wax), image transfers and paint, I explore the writings and theories as well as how nature, myth, and archetypes can capture and connect to our deeper purpose and desires. As James Hillman stated, “the tree suits our notion of personality growth, and indeed appears as a spontaneous metaphor for the imperceptible expansion from seed to fullness.”
This painting is on a cradled wood panel with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.
