Encaustic on panel.
14 x 11 x 1.5 inches
encaustic, 3D, cubes, multi-dimensional
Some years ago, I was taken with paintings of elaborate five-sided figures by an artist friend. At a recent workshop in San Miguel, Mexico, I spent hours every day painting a number of small oils on paper in which I tackled my own multi-dimensional forms. Then during the pandemic, I found that I had more time, patience, and license to start figuring them out on a larger scale.
The satisfaction I derived from painting the 3D constructs. The personal pleasure of creating a simple form in space on a 2D panel had me. The cubes are lit and there is a sense of falling, tumbling as if caught in the act. Frozen in time.
