> DESCRIPTION

'Fusion' is an exploration of mixed media, cold wax and encaustic art-making processes. The word 'encaustic' comes from the ancient Greek and means to 'burn in'. It describes a process of fusing a paint composed of beeswax, dammar resin and pigments. Optical depth is created by fusing together different surface layers with a heat source, to create a single element. The idea of an experience that 'burns in', fusing shaping and changing our sense of self, is at the heart of this work.
