“Confluence” by Lisa Kairos 2012
Encaustic, paper, aluminum, oil
Notes: My work has increasingly used transparency as an integral part of my process. This painting is a great example of how transparent wax, applied to a dark under-layer, creates varying value according to it’s thickness.
Also, this is an example of how I use modular panels to create larger works. In this case, three panels are bolted together with heavy-duty bolts. This makes it easier to work in my tiny studio, and easier to ship the work when it’s done.
