Wanderlust is a physical representation of heat and warmth. Encaustic (pigmented wax) is the primary medium and can only be manipulated with heat. The different textures, pours and brushstrokes are all a reflection of the pooling and cooling of the hot wax. A durable medium, the simple layers almost reveal an inner glow of the wax underneath. Though it has long since cooled, the bright pigment and bubbling shellac bring their own heat. In the cold and overcast months of New England winter, I wanted to explore and show the soft, crackling warmth of encaustic.
