Painting: Acrylic, Ink, gold leaf, custom hand marbled paper, encaustic wax on Wood.
Encaustic wax collage on birch panel made with custom hand-marbled archival paper.
Floating and dripping the arboreal-fungi-like motif frames patterns evocative of astral phenomena. It has a muted and neutral palette set against a pale yellow sun shape. The grain of the birch wood substrate is left exposed and a sprinkle of hand-gilded gold leaf references the star stuff that permeates everything.
The painting surface is fused with encaustic wax (beeswax and resin) which gives a soft, waxy shine and slightly opaque effect. Painting is ready to hang as-is revealing the making process on the edges or can be framed by the collector. Signed on back.
Part of an ongoing body of work titled 'Cosmic Botany'. The visual language juxtaposes geometric forms and organic texture to highlight the aesthetic parallels found between mycology and astronomy.
