About The Artwork

“I’ve been through many dark times. I paint because I want to tell my and your story. We are not survivers, we are victors. To survive is to overcome, to life is to be courageous!” https://lifeart.co.za/2020/03/04/making-mistakes/ This painting is a reflection between sky and earth, representing the spirit and the soul. The relationship between faith and life and between the real and the imaginary gets reflected by the translucent blending and mixed surfaces of the painting. One cannot exist without the other. You can tell the waves be still, Tell the ocean roar to pass. Lord until it does, I'll wait here... The storm is not in me, I'll wait here. “My work is about a very specific message to a specific viewer. I see myself as a glorified postmaster. However, the work itself is a unique hybrid of painting and wax.” The surface of the painting is made up of layers of oils, inks, and wax, which give the finished work a three-dimensional quality. A sense of seeing through the top layer into hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewers become a part of the slow change and clarity of the painting...as if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind There is a strange ethereal beauty in these paintings as if they were made from air.

My aim to make art that not only tells my story, but all our stories. To speak to the abused, the down-trodden, the hopeless, the lost, the lonely, the shamed, the orphan, the abandoned. My work is characterized by contrasts – the juxtaposition of light and dark on several levels – which is recognized throughout my paintings. Fine detail, drawn lines, and meticulously painted shapes clash with bold brushstrokes, spatters and blurred and melted colors. Leonie.e.Brown has a degree in Fine Arts and diploma in teaching and studied Fine Art in Potchefstroom. She was one of the early winners of the Volkskas (now ABSA) Atelier, and today lives and works Cape Town. She has been exhibiting and selling since 2004. Passionate about painting and experimenting with Encaustics, she focuses her work on the relationship between the human spirit, faith, touch,and daily life. About the Style: The brightness of oils are mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax) and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the painting…as if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings as if made from air. It is important that the viewer is part of the process. Time blurs and heals our wounds. Like About Encaustics: The term Encaustica is derived from Greek, meaning burning in. Encaustic art has soft, smokey and sensual feel about it and is a spontaneous medium where hot or cold wax is used, to which colored pigments have been added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface and the various layers are melted and burned into each other. It is typically layered to create more opaque, or more translucent effects, and can be combined with other materials. Each layer of wax can also be scraped, textured or polished for a variety of finishes. The possibilities are endless—encaustic paintings can be abstract or realistic, subtle or bold—and the wax itself is enormously sensual. It’s really all about incorporating your own style into this wonderful medium.
