About Ezshwan Winding

I strive to make art that touches people's hearts, either abstract or figurative and has spiritual meaning for me. Through my art, I hope to connect with others with beauty of harmony, color, form and energy. Dreams and mediation often give me a starting point on an image. Then comes the applications of many layers of molten beeswax, resin and pigments; each layer is heat fused into the existing surface, AT time I draw or paint on the layers and then scrape and rebuild the facade. This action is much like analyzing a dream. Layer after layer is applied, scraped, incised, fused and marked to allow the truth of the piece to speak. The revealed under layers whisper their subtle messages. I never have total control of life or encasutic painting. Like jazz, there is improvisation that can take a work to a deeper, more subconscious state that can be meditative. I allow my subconscious to take over so that the work may transform beyond the mundane and predictable. I open my senses to the experience and emotionally consent to a poetic and thrilling adventure. The fluidity of the encaustic medium is challenging, exhilarating, inspiring and exciting, making a paintings that can be looked into as well as looked at. The layered luminosity is appealingly tactile, encouraging viewers to stroke and caress the surface, discovering the sensual experience of encasutic.

I have studied color and written a book on the power of color to heal, shift moods, uplift or relax us. Color and balance is paramount in my work.
