This dramatic landscape is an oil encaustic on canvas. A red line slices through the canvas vertically, slowly radiating outward. A rich and subtle gradient coupled with small yet expressive brushwork creates a dynamic composition focusing on the interaction of color. Foxy Red comes gallery wrapped, ready to hang.
The encaustic medium is ancient in its origins and consists of a pigment suspended in wax. When oil paint is mixed with beeswax, dramatic effects are achieved. Light filters through the layers of paint giving Rogers’ work an inner glow. The oil encaustic process holds the impression of her brushstrokes, allowing the artist to create a composition with a tactile surface quality.
