Salt Flats

I flew with my son, a pilot, and was intrigued with how the world, when viewed from above, was at the same time familiar and abstract.   This led me to explore and discover the abstractness of the earth from an aerial perspective.  Salt Flats pieces were inspired by the colors and textures of the salt flats. My medium is encaustic, (beeswax, resin and pigment) melted to create a paint that is applied and worked in a molten state.  With it, I create the polished, translucent, areas of the colorful evaporation pools juxtaposed with areas where I employed my signature ‘drop’ technique to build an abstracted interpretation of the textural areas of the roads and accumulated salt.
