Confluence

“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.
