It is said that all life on earth is created from the matter of long-dead stars. This abstract landscape is composed of a layered paper collage motif floating on a painterly canvas background. The fungi-mountain-cloud-ghost-warrior-like form is composed of custom hand-marbled designs and drippy, leggy tendrils. The title references a memorable day I spent drifting on a boat through the mist of Ha Long Bay. The mid-century inspired color palette includes green, gold and gray tones set against a warm and creamy background. Gold leaf spore-like details reference the star matter that permeates everything. The exposed woodgrain background is composed of reclaimed 1/4" birch plywood. This painting is mounted inside a primitive and rustic hand-made pine frame. Please click to expand image and view image close-up for a detail of the uneven frame edge. The painting surface is finished under a cloudy layer of encaustic wax. Encaustic art involves fusing heated beeswax and damar resin on the surface of the substrate. The results are a soft, barely opaque, molten surface full of nuance and character that catches the light. Care for an encaustic painting as you would any fine art painting. Signed on the front.

Jamie Gray is an abstract artist, living and working in Denver CO. Gray has exhibited in galleries & art fairs in the U.K. & the U.S, had work commissioned for museum shops in London & Kansas City, had work included in hotel collections in NY & Miami, and sold to collectors in Australia, England, Europe, and the U.S. “Jamie creates paintings that are both geometric and primordial” – Aurora Garrison, Saatchi Art Curator The artist’s work can be described as a novel mix of geometric abstraction, minimalist & nature-inspired motifs, hand-rendered pattern & texture, and craft-based techniques such as encaustic wax, woodworking, gilding & paper marbling. Gray studied photography and graphic design. This educational foundation, plus time spent teaching and practicing design, deeply underpins her aesthetic choices and creative processes. “It is said that all life on earth is created from the matter of long-dead stars. Through my art, I'm interested in making contemplative moments for interior spaces that subtly reference some of the creative forces behind our natural world. The shapes I see in my environment — from pebbles to prairies, feathers to forests, mushrooms to mountains, crystals to clouds — provide me with a constant source of inspiration. Ultimately, I’m interested in creating a visual language based on pattern and geometric abstraction that offers the viewer multiple interpretations while also revealing a common thread between diverse subject matter." – Jamie Gray, Artist Statement
