This abstracted landscape is an oil encaustic on panel. Hues of vibrant orange are applied to the canvas with active and expressive brushwork. A strong horizon line slices through the canvas clearly dividing the earth from the sky. Golden Seam comes mounted in a birch wood frame, 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.
