This abstracted landscape is an oil encaustic on panel. A magical gradient of color exemplifies the artist’s mastery of color interactions. Through expressive brushwork, misty purple fades into a pale orange which then flows into a buttery yellow. This soft yet evocative work is reminiscent of Monet’s Waterlilies. Monet Revisited 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.
