This abstracted landscape is an oil encaustic on panel. A thin horizon line draws the viewer in while expressive brushwork allows the eye to move around. The interaction of orange and yellow is examined in this fiery composition. Summer 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.
