Cold Wax

“Homonym Series” 2015-present. Cold wax and oil on artist panel.

The Homonym series is an exploration of expressions that hold meaning for everyone, and dot our daily conversation. These words are also commonly used in our food environment.

The cold wax medium has a tactile characteristic which allows me to alternate delicate passages with boldly painted areas. This produces a dimensional relationship, and the dialog between the two is what I use to create a portrait of the word.

Currently I chose to paint the homonym series in small format, to give the work an observational quality.
