Archaeology of Thought

Materials: Cold Wax Medium, Oil on Wood.

Size: 60 H x 60 W x 2 cm

This is an oil painting on a cradled wooden board using a cold wax medium. The cold wax process favors rapid execution and energetic marks or gestures, encouraging the creation of layers of translucent color, texture and impasto.

This theme is a continuing exploration of landscape, climate and sensory information translated. Archaeology……..because I am interested in what lies beneath the surface, the stratification of accumulated knowledge and experience. In this work, the conventions of pictorial space exert a gravitational pull………..inescapable.

Keywords: texture, oil painting, impasto, cold wax medium, abstraction, landscape
