encaustic artAbove, see Angela Wood’s magnificent  encaustic painting titled  “Cliffs of Mohr, Ireland #1”. It is a small work, only 8″ x 10″, but it sure packs a punch!

Angela Wood says this about her encaustic ( and mixed media ) art :

“The concept of the many layers of our life experiences forming our physical, spiritual and emotional identity lends itself to creating and adding layers of visual depth and density in my art work.

It is through this process of using layers of memory that I incorporate art materials to record the journeys, turning points and return to a new beginning.”

She says this specifically about her paintings of the sea and ocean:

The seascapes and landscapes are created using encaustic and water-based oil paints, and are occasionally embedded with gold and silver leaf and covered with iridescent oil paints. A deep sense of awe and reverence for the beauty and power of nature is expressed in all of my water and land paintings. These natural landscapes, along with the body print paintings, all reflect a desire to show constant movement and natural rhythm.
