'The Connection' is an encaustic wax mixed media painting. This painting begins with layers of hot fluid wax and pigment, each layer is chosen to enhance or contrast with the previous layer and sealed with a heat torch. During the process of development intuitive marks and shapes are also laid down. These layers are sometimes constructed and deconstructed, gouged, glazed and scratched, lines drawn and then covered by further layers.
I approached this painting in the same way as I do for most of my works, the colour, line and form eventually begin to suggest the sort of imagery that brings forth an internalized vision and makes a connection with my conscious thought patterns of experiences.
